Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis | Groups

Four Buildings.  One Olin.

Olin's four buildings form a campus within the larger university campus where synergies across all business programs create natural interactions among faculty, students and staff. Each program has a home base in one of the buildings, but shared public spaces and resources like the library or career center will insure a constant flow and mix of community members throughout all four buildings. The location of program offices and student lounges provide a center or home base for the faculty, students and staff affiliated with each program. We think of it as four buildings, one Olin.
Each building will provide a “center of gravity” for different programs.  The location of program offices and student lounges will provide a center or home base for the faculty, students and staff affiliated with each program.

  • Simon Hall – Undergraduate Program
  • Knight Center – Executive Programs and Conference Center
  • Knight Hall – Graduate Programs
  • Bauer Hall – Graduate Programs

In addition to popular gathering spots such as Simon Hall’s courtyard, lounges, and Einstein Bros. Bagels, Knight Hall and Bauer hall house new places to meet, eat, study, and socialize. The Atrium with a café, the Frick Forum, and The Mews are just a few examples of the places that will serve the Olin community. The Knight Center's dining room will also accept reservations from students for the lunch buffet.
