The new $20 million Business School and Residence Hall at Columbia College
The four-story, 60,000 square-foot building on the north end of campus is scheduled to open in August 2019.
The first floor will house the college’s business school and an event center that will hold 150 people. The college’s business school is now in Williams Hall, built in the 1840s. Business students are the fastest growing segment of students at Columbia College.
The top three floors will be for residential students, with 150 beds. Enrollment on the Columbia campus has grown 20 percent in two years. It’s the first new residence hall on the local campus since 1969.
