WVU Law expanding its presence in Charleston, W.Va.

WVU Law Equities House

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.— West Virginia University is expanding its presence in Charleston, leasing two floors in Equities House, a central downtown office building that will become home to several University offices in the state’s capital city.

“Charleston is the business and cultural heart of West Virginia,” said President Gordon Gee. “While West Virginia University has always been in the Charleston region in some capacity, this new venture provides a consolidated and multi-faceted presence that will allow the University to serve its constituents better and create a base of operations that will greatly benefit the region and the state.”

The University’s College of Law, WVU Extension Service and John Chambers College of Business and Economics will occupy the 19,000 square foot space.

Gregory Bowman, the William J. Maier Jr. dean of the College of Law, sees a lot of potential for an expanded WVU location in Charleston.
