Facilities and resources

The Business School's award-winning Owen G Glenn Building gives staff and students an integrated, purpose-built structure. It houses fully-equipped lecture theatres, computer labs, work rooms and social spaces, along with cafés and an on-site bank, clustered around a spectacular 26m-high atrium. Disabled access and facilities are available throughout the building.

The iconic building stands as a place of convergence for business, academia and government — a collaborative, knowledge-rich environment within which to forge the capabilities that this country needs to succeed in sophisticated global markets.

Designed by architect firms Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp and Archimedia, the Owen G Glenn Building was completed in 2008 and has since won numerous awards, including an NZIA Auckland Architecture Award, and was shortlisted at the World Architecture Festival Awards.

The Business School building is named after the major donor and New Zealand entrepreneur and benefactor Owen G Glenn.
