A New Home for Shocker Success

Renovating Clinton Hall to Bring Student Services Under One Roof

You matter at Wichita State

When the W. Frank Barton School of Business moves to its new home in 2022, Clinton Hall will become
available for a new purpose. With its prime location in the heart of campus, next to the Rhatigan Student
Center and Ablah Library, Clinton Hall is an ideal spot for the new Shocker Success Center.

This project will bring together 16 different student services currently housed in 10 buildings scattered across campus.

What’s the impact?

  • For our students: greater convenience, better service, less confusion.
  • For our staff: new opportunities to collaborate, innovate and share resources.
  • For our university: increased cost efficiencies and less reliance on outdated facilities.

This $16.2 million renovation will transform Clinton Hall, signifying its new purpose at Wichita State. New
entrances, light and airy interior spaces and updated features throughout will create a warm, welcoming and
highly functional Shocker Success Center. Estimated move-in date: December 2023.

“With the renovation of Clinton Hall, we know that students will benefit from the centralization of resources so important to their success. The time they spend now walking from one building to another and trying to figure out a confusing system will be spent on more productive activities.”
-Rija Khan, student body president
