Facilities and resources
Covering over 34,000 square metres, the Owen G Glenn Building is New Zealand's largest teaching space and home to staff and students of The University of Auckland Business School.
The Business School's state-of-the-art Owen G Glenn Building gives staff and students an integrated, purpose-built structure.

Disabled access and facilities are throughout the building.
Completed in 2008, 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.
