BIF – Space Policy

About BIF Spaces

The environmentally sustainable Business Instructional Facility (BIF) is, by design, a student-centric venue with state-of-the-art technology for Business students to study and interact. While the upper floors provide students and faculty with classrooms, breakout and meeting spaces, and access to a number of faculty in residence, the ground floor and north wing are dedicated to student services that promote learning and career development. The PricewaterhouseCoopers Accountancy Student Center, KPMG International Accounting Suite, Margolis Market Information Lab and Infinium Capital Management Trading Room, Ernst & Young Center for Career Advancement, ILLINOIS MBA Suite, Illinois Business Consulting, and the Cammack Undergraduate Office give students ready access to valued services. A future café, virtual bulletin boards, an outdoor courtyard, and a spaciously furnished Commons space encourage students to study and relax without hindrance. The Deloitte Auditorium is also designed with students in mind – boasting warm wood, comfortable theater seating, and exceptional acoustics to maximize learning and teaching effectiveness.

Use of BIF’s Spaces

BIF is aptly named an “instructional facility” because its spaces are intended to be used by students and faculty for the purpose of business education and career development. The architects, administrators, and generous donors who built the facility intended it to be accessible to and utilized by Business students foremost. With such intent and mission in mind, the College limits access to BIF and allocates space accordingly. Requests from external constituents to hold events in BIF are generally refused in the interest of Business students. The College of Business reserves the right to grant or deny any request for use of BIF spaces. In accordance with University policy, no space in or around BIF may be used by nonUniversity entities to solicit or market to students.
