The Prebys Career Services Center meets an important need for an increasing number of students at the Indiana University Kelley School of Business as well as other undergraduates across the Bloomington campus. With the expansion of Hodge Hall and an increase in the number of students admitted to the School, the existing facility could no longer keep up with the demand.
Programmed to support extended services for Kelley School graduates, the addition is flexible, supporting multiple events and activities, e.g., interviews/ meetings, counseling, job fairs and visiting corporate partners. The Career Services addition houses a large reception space, multiple smaller scale meeting and conference spaces, and offices.
Completing the additions and renovations to the Kelley School of Business buildings, BSA proposed the Center’s site be located north of the existing Kelley tower on the east side of Fee Lane. BSA presented the opportunity for the addition to create a new north public entry and reconfigure the current receiving area to be less public. The connection to the north end also minimized the impact on existing office windows, allowing for more natural light. The project also engaged the landscaped area west of the tower along Fee Lane to be used for a seating area and collaboration zone.
