About the New Building

The new home for the College of Business will be a think tank environment, bringing students, faculty and industry together in a collaborative, inspiring space that is forward thinking in its design and daily application. Business students will have the kind of attractive environment that compels them to work, engage, study, ask hard questions, challenge themselves and work together.

The new building will:

  • be a dual-tower, five-story structure across from Sikes Hall in the heart of campus;
  • house 176,000 square feet of space to accommodate growth, encompassing more than twice the square footage of Sirrine;
  • allow students and faculty to be centrally located in one building compared to the 5 buildings currently;
  • possess the technological capabilities of a top university, with the capacity to evolve as technology changes;
  • facilitate and enhance the partnership between academics and industry, providing opportunities for cutting-edge and applied research;
  • create a flexible think tank with post-doctoral fellows, adjunct and visiting dignitaries and scholars, graduate students and permanent faculty that tackle the major business and social issues; and
  • become a model of sustainability with quality daylighting, recycled or locally sourced materials and a LEED Silver certification;
  • open in 2020.
