Owen G Glenn Building

"Located in New Zealand's largest city, the Business School's purpose-built, architecturally designed Owen G Glenn Building (OGGB) dominates the Grafton Road side of the City campus, at the heart of Auckland's main commercial centre.

With views of Auckland's port, Rangitoto Island and Auckland Domain, the architecturally striking Owen G Glenn Building, is a place where great ideas are generated, knowledge is shared and enterprises prosper and flourish.

The Owen G Glenn Building offers state-of-the-art teaching, learning and research spaces, two 600-seat lecture theatres in a dedicated auditorium complex, large fully digitised and equipped case-rooms, computer labs and quiet areas for relaxation and study.

This is a place where staff, students, alumni and members of the business community share opportunities and maximise linkages, contacts and collaborations. Those who spend time in the building are inspired to pursue knowledge and add to the skills they require to have successful careers."
