MEDIA ADVISORY: Kent State Community Invited to First Look at College of Business Administration Building Design Proposals

Building will anchor new signature gateway entrance to campus as part of university’s $1 billion master plan


As a part of a building design competition, Kent State University is inviting finalists to present their concepts for this transformational project. Through the competition, the university seeks to select a development team for the project.

The proposed new College of Business Administration building is part of the university’s Gateway to a Distinctive Kent State, a $1 billion master plan to transform the Kent Campus and improve facilities over 10 years. Construction of the College of Business Administration building is a key part of the first phase of the plan’s implementation.

The proposed building would be located on Main Street and will serve as an anchor in the transformation of Front Campus, which will include a signature gateway to the university, additional green spaces and a new parking deck.
