Brock School of Business Building

About the Building

Since 1922, Samford University has delivered life-long business education to students through quality teaching, meaningful scholarship, and servant relationships, imbued by its Christian commitment. In order to sustain this legacy for the next generation, Samford needs a next generation building that will equip them for the future ahead.

There is no doubt that teaching and student learning will benefit from the technology, spaces and facilities this new building will provide.

Located directly behind the Harwell G. Davis Library and to the east of Mamie Mell Smith Residence Hall, the new Brock School of Business building will provide much needed classroom, office and meeting room space for the Samford and Birmingham community. A breathtaking glass atrium will be the center of this four-story building, but the true heart of the building will be a revived sense of learning, innovation and opportunity.


  • Portfolio Management Room
  • 2 Computer Teaching Labs
  • Technology-Equipped Classrooms
  • Break-out rooms connected to many of the classrooms
  • Common area for students to collaborate, build community and promote identification
  • Student business incubator
  • A community resource forum able to host up to 400 guests for receptions, meetings and lectures

A new Brock School of Business Building will represent an investment in the development of professional and ethical business leaders in our communities and across the world. Partner with us and other alumni and local businesses to be an integral part of the Brock legacy.

Jackie Robinson once said ‘a life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.’ The legacy of the Brock School of Business and the energy created by our new building will impact lives beyond that which any of us could ever, ever, ever dream.
Alan Register, BS ’86, Chair of Advisory Board & Birmingham City President, BBVA Compass
