Glass Hall- Spring 2017 Information

Pardon our progress

The renovation and expansion of Glass Hall will not be complete until fall 2017.  Therefore, during the coming year there will be several active construction zones throughout the building.  We ask that you pardon our progress and remain patient.  Pay attention to all signage and construction barriers.  DO NOT enter areas that are closed, taped off, or clearly hardhat only zones.  

Please allow for extra time when visiting Glass Hall for classes or appointments. During the year, certain hallways or exterior entrances may be closed.  You will find closure information on this page, so please check back often.  

Spring 2017 Information

Entrances and Exits

There will be three available entrances and exits to Glass Hall.  You may enter on the northwest corner near Blue lot 20 and the soccer and track stadium, on the southwest near the Citizen Scholar statue, or on the south side, via the ramp sidewalk, using the center doors near the Business Advisement Center.  

Elevators, Stairwells and Emergency Exits 

Elevators will be operational on both the north and south sides of the building during the spring 2017 semester.  

Both stairwells on the west end (the same side as Strong Hall) of the building are fully functionable and are available to use on all floors, 1-4.   The stairwells on the east end (across from Meyer Library) are closed for the spring 2017 semester.

The new northeast (NE) stairwell is available for emergency use only.  On floors 2, 3, and 4, if you exit into what was the NE stairwell, you will see signs directing you to the new stairwell (constructed just north of the old stairwell).  Those using the NE stairwell in an emergency, will travel to the 1st floor and then follow a well-marked evacuation path through the new building and then onto John Q Hammons Parkway.  


All classrooms and offices are clearly labeled.  Please be patient and look for signs.  If you are lost, visit the nearest departmental office and ask for assistance.  

Business Advisement Center (BAC)

The BAC will be located in Glass Hall, room 225 starting Tuesday, March 7.  Room 225 is across from the restrooms and near the open computer lab. The BAC phone number will remain the same, 417-836-5386.  

The BAC will be closed Friday, March 3 and Monday, March 6 for relocation.  

Career Services

The University Career Center office previously located on the first floor of Glass Hall has moved to Carrington Hall 309.  417-836-5636

Graduate Programs Office

The Graduate Programs Office has also relocated from the second floor to Glass 427. 


Restrooms on the first floor are closed.  All other restrooms on floors 2-4 remain open.  

Weekend Access

Glass Hall will be closed every weekend to allow for construction progress.  Please plan accordingly.  You may utilize study areas and computer labs across the street in Meyer Library or within other buildings on campus. Student organizations, study groups, or other constituent groups will not be allowed to reserve space within Glass Hall on weekends.
