A new facility dedicated to the Rohrer College of Business at Rowan University in New Jersey comprises a business center, café, lounge, and makerspace across its 99,000 sf.

The building’s design, targeted to achieve LEED Silver, focuses on energy conservation, uses locally sourced materials, and takes hydrology and ecology measures in relation to the campus’s wetland assets. An elliptical glass tower was added to the formal masonry building to showcase the manufacturing history of the region as depicted by Ed Carpenter.

The Rowan Business Center, The Hub, The Hatchery, and the Center for Business Professionalism support the students’ academic programs and business development.

The Rowan Business Center is a venue for business innovation and joins the opportunities of the region with the expertise and resources of the College of Business. The Hub is a public café and lounge that facilitates interaction among students, faculty, and business leaders. The Hatchery is an entrepreneurial makerspace designed to transition student business initiative to market. The Center for Business Professionalism is a space that prepares students for the world of business presentations, interviews, and the interpersonal relationships of the work place.
