The Wisconsin School of Business (WSB) and UW–Madison’s General Library System are excited to announce the creation of a new Learning Commons within Grainger Hall. The collaborative project renovated 35,000 square feet of Grainger Hall and unified the Huber Computer Lab with the two floors of the Business Library into one cohesive commons. With construction beginning in Fall 2017 and finished in Spring of 2018, the project connects the School’s west and east wings, which were completed in 1993 and 2008, respectively. The Learning Commons creates a visible heart for the building and brings together the two wings of Grainger Hall, both visually and programmatically.

The project underscores WSB's commitment to educational innovation. The Learning Commons is a locale for making, doing, producing, and innovating—a vibrant place for students to collaborate, exchange ideas, and dream big. The exterior of Grainger Hall remains unchanged while the inside has been opened up and transformed by the intentional use of natural light and glass with WSB’s brand, Together Forward®, integrated throughout, and the creation of spaces that facilitate active learning and collaboration.
