University of San Diego begins construction of business school facility

April 16, 2021
The Knauss Center for Business Education is scheduled to open in 2022.

The University of San Diego has broken ground on a facility that will house its School of Business.

The 72,000-square-foot Knauss Center for Business Education will be built adjacent to the existing Olin Hall building.

Together, the facilities will form a 120,000-square-foot complex that will unify all of the university's School of Business’ academic programs, centers and institutes under one roof.

The complex will include instructional spaces, collaboration spaces, data analytics and financial labs and is planned to open for classes in fall 2022.

The building is named for the chair of the University of San Diego’s Board of Trustees, Don Knauss, the former CEO of Clorox, and his wife, Ellie. The Knauss’s $20 million gift in 2017 helped solidify the final planning and construction of the complex.
