Graduate School of Business prepares to move

Toni Shears
Director of Web Development, GSB

With great excitement, the Graduate School of Business is packing up to move into its new home on the Hyde Park campus in September.

Work crews are working seven days a week to put the finishing touches on the building this month. If the occupancy permit is issued on schedule, school operations will move after Labor Day. Classes will be held there when autumn quarter begins Sept. 23.

GSB move coordinators are working hard to minimize the impact to the public and the University community, but some level of disruption is unavoidable. Please make note of the move dates below, when service interruptions will be likely to occur.

   Aug. 13-16: Servers moved; expect server outages
   Aug. 13: Migrate print services, list mail, LEAD web pages, and e-mail services for faculty, students, and alumni
   Aug. 14: Migrate Exchange e-mail, shared drives, portal, CRM, event scheduling, and Apply Direct online application
   Aug. 15: Migrate administrative applications and web site servers
   Aug. 16: Contingency day; finish any remaining migration
   Sept. 7: Faculty move begins and continues throughout week
   Sept. 10: Staff move begins and will be completed by start of classes
   Sept. 16: Scheduled date for student access; no students will have access before ID key card badges are distributed.

During the move period, disruptions to online services will be reported via the University of Chicago web site, using the NSIT announcements service found near the bottom of the home page.

The new address for the Graduate School of Business will be 5807 South Woodlawn. All GSB phone numbers are expected to remain the same.

Coinciding with the move, we are changing our web site and e-mail addresses to align with the school’s graphic identity and strengthen our brand. The web site is now

E-mail addresses are in the format:
and e-mail lists are in the format:

The existing web, e-mail, and street addresses will all be forwarded to the new ones. However, please update mailing lists, address books, and print materials that include GSB addresses.

Your patience is requested, and very much appreciated during this period of change.
