Steven S. Wymer Hall – University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

1 2 / 2

This is the eighth project that Clayco has built on the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and our fifth project as a JV with Turner.

The new Steven S. Wymer Hall facility will serve undergraduate and graduate students – both residential and online – as well as faculty and staff. The four-story building will be just under 100,000 square feet and will stand on Gregory Drive between the Business Instructional Facility and Huff Hall. Construction will begin in spring 2023 and is expected to be completed by early 2025.

This state-of-the-art building will help prepare Illinois students for futures of purpose and impact. A partnership between Gies Business and campus, this hybrid educational facility will be home to much-needed collaboration spaces, traditional and flexible classrooms, informal learning environments, content creation studios, as well as academic offices and support spaces.

Located in the heart of south campus, this building will be home to spaces that will enable learners – both on campus and online – to achieve their potential. At just under 100,000 square feet, it will include a 200-seat auditorium, two 80-seat classrooms, and four 60-seat classrooms. In support of the College’s rapidly growing online programs, the new building will include two 40’x40’ sound stages, five blackbox studios, and six control booths. 18 additional meeting and collaborative rooms will provide expanded space for experiential learning, group work, and meetings with recruiters. Finally, 84 new office spaces will support the College’s growing faculty and staff.

The leading-edge online teaching studios will bring the educational power of the University of Illinois to the world. Classrooms and gathering spaces will provide the tools and technology learners need to discover ways to make a positive impact on the world. Flexible classrooms will allow quick transition from a lecture format to collaborative group interaction.
