With 19,000 square feet, the new space is designed to encourage collaboration among students and faculty.

Webster University’s new Kansas City campus location held its grand opening Wednesday, April 22. The new location offers a more academic feel and more modern amenities for students while also raising Webster University’s profile in the region, where Webster University has offered classes since 1966.

The first full-time campus in Kansas City opened in 1972 as the first permanent Webster University location outside of St. Louis.

Over the years, the campus has grown substantially and needs have evolved. When it first opened, students only could earn a Master of Arts in Teaching degree.

Today, the campus offers a mix of graduate and undergraduate courses.

“Markets are always evolving, and Webster University adapts to those changes by offering world-class programs that are in demand by local employers and students,” said Nancy Hellerud, vice provost of Academic Affairs at Webster University.

The new Kansas City metro location at 10450 Holmes Street has about 19,000 square feet designed to encourage collaboration among students and faculty.

The new Kansas City metro location is at 10450 Holmes Street, suite #100, with great access from I-435.

“This new location is more visible, and the space has been designed to foster an environment of collaboration among students and faculty and elevate the education experience.”

The new location, at 10450 Holmes Street, Suite #100, has about 19,000 square feet of space. The new space is designed to encourage collaboration among students and faculty.

The new site has a dozen classrooms, three computer labs, a reception area, seven offices, seven workspaces, an employee break room, a student lounge, advising space, and extra space that can easily be converted into additional classrooms or labs. It also has easy access to area freeways, making it more convenient for students who may be heading to class from work.
