The Haas School building, designed by the renowned architect Charles Moore, is a mini-campus of three connected buildings set around a central courtyard. The buildings were designed to create a sense of community by fostering business and educational interactions among students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

The complex features an ultramodern computer lab, a comprehensive career center, and a large business and economics library. All parts of the building are wired for the 21st century. Classrooms, lecture halls, and seminar rooms throughout the school are equipped to receive video, audio, and electronic data, including wireless computer access.

An executive education and distance-learning classroom features four installed video cameras, and is equipped to webcast live. At library tables, classroom seats, and in lounges, students can connect laptop computers directly to the Haas server and the Internet.
