Commerce West building established | 150 Engage Illinois Office of Corporate Relations
Celebrating our Sesquicentennial 1867-2017

Commerce West, named because of its position directly west of David Kinley Hall, opens. The 98,000-square-foot building houses classroom space, 100 offices, a 350-seat auditorium, and an IBM computer. The fourth floor, dedicated to faculty and graduate offices, has no womens restroom because there are no female staff or graduate students at the time. The cost of the building is $3.3 million.
