The Carl DeSantis Building houses the H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship. It was a significant expansion to NSU and opened its doors in 2004. The design is state of the art. It includes general-purpose classrooms, compressed video/teleconferencing classrooms, a lecture theater, computer labs, multipurpose facilities, conference facilities, business services/copy center, and a full service café as well as administrative and student offices with support facilities. The café features an Einstein Bros. Bagels restaurant that is operated under a brand-licensing agreement (not under a traditional franchise arrangement).
