The college's office of Academic Advising and Career Services as well as campus technology are located at 4340 Oak St. in Mineral Hall, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building was the home of mining magnate R. E. Bruner, who embedded mineral samples in the interior stone walls of his first-floor library, inspiring the name Mineral Hall. Dating to 1903-04, the structure is an amalgam of Art Nouveau, Prairie Style, Second Empire and Neoclassic architectural elements. The front door is said to be the most photographed doorway in Kansas City.
