Construction has moved along for the University of Dallas’ SB Hall, home of the Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business. The facility is scheduled to open in early 2016.
The college was renamed in 2013 after the Guptas, Dallas-based global steel entrepreneurs whose gift will fund the building. They are graduates of the university’s MBA program and gave $12 million to build the facility. Their gift is the largest in the university’s history.
SB Hall will stand at one of the highest points in the area. When completed, the facility will support the university’s commitment to energy efficiency and green architecture.
The building will incorporate classrooms on every floor, community gathering places and study lounges, and numerous meeting spaces for student groups. SB Hall will offer an abundance of natural light and interactive classrooms and is designed to evolve through the decades, allowing reconfiguration of spaces as the campus population and its needs change.
