Woolsey Hall

Building Info

Wayne and Kay Woolsey Hall, the new home of the Barton School of Business, is now open on the Wichita State University Innovation Campus.

The 125,000-square-foot, LEED-certified facility began construction in October 2020 with occupancy expected in time for Spring 2022 classes. The project was the top priority in the WSU Foundation’s $250 million Shock the World Campaign for Wichita State.

The building, designed by Kansas City-based architectural firm GastingerWalker and Gensler Chicago, will be named after Wayne Woolsey, chairman of Woolsey Companies, an oil and natural gas exploration and production company, and his wife, Kay. The Woolseys made a $12 million gift, representing the single largest cash donation ever made to Wichita State and the WSU Foundation.
