Students will say goodbye to the Bunnell House and the north visitor parking lot. In their place the new Student Life and Wellness Building, as well as a four-story parking structure, will be built.
A groundbreaking ceremony will take place on Monday, June 18 at 11:30 a.m. Both the north end of the Sorensen Student Center and the east hallway of the PE Building will connect to the second floor of the new 170,000 square foot building, scheduled for completion in December 2013. A 450-space parking garage, expected to be complete in summer 2013, will be constructed west of the LDS Institute Building and north of The Grand Ballroom.
“This is good for UVU because [the Student Life and Wellness Building] provides that place for students to congregate, meet, socialize, have fun, relax, and take care of the mind, body and spirit,” said Dr. Bob Rasmussen, Dean of Students.
