CMU’s Grawn Hall is home to the College of Business Administration. Grawn was built in 1915 and is the oldest building on campus, serving about 4,200 students a year.

The project, slated for completion in August 2017, involves construction of a 6,600 square-foot, two-story addition on the west side of the building which will include a new main entry with atrium, cafe and multifunctional space for lectures, events and group study. In addition, renovations to 16,200 square feet of existing space will include a new student success center, student collaboration spaces and technology upgrades to current classrooms along with heavy MEP upgrades, updates to corridors, fire suppression and window replacement.
