The new center, which had been in the conceptual phase for years, officially opened for business on Aug. 26 at 6 a.m., following an evening ribbon cutting ceremony. Located on Hillside Road at the intersection with Jim Calhoun Way, it joins the School of Business, Gampel Pavilion, and the UConn Bookstore. The facility, which is 191,000 square feet of area and four stories tall, is open to all members of the university community.
