The University of New Haven announced it will renew, rebuild, and re-envision its main campus as the University approaches its Centennial in 2020.
Originally founded on the Yale Campus in 1920, the University is undertaking an unprecedented building program, called Building for Success.
“Our robust program of renovations and new construction will change the central campus to enhance not only the quality of the academic offerings but the quality of our community,” University President Steven H. Kaplan said.
“The program is re-envisioning the campus to reflect the entire student experience – one built into classrooms, housing, and social spaces, as well as the ways in which members of the University community, guests, and visitors move through and around the campus.”
In addition, the University is renovating a 38,000-square-foot building at One Care Lane adjacent to campus to serve as a research center. The building will include space for advanced student studies, such as the Center for Analytics, as well as additional research labs and project space for students.
The University is also making significant upgrades to Dodds Hall, including upgrades to science laboratories, as well as renovations to residence halls and athletics facilities that will enrich the experience for student-athletes and fans.
The University is also investing in enhancements to its parking and transportation programs, greening the campus, and improving pedestrian and bicycle travel ways.
