The new 250,000 square-foot classroom building will have more than 200 offices, 3,000 classrooms, a 1,000-seat auditorium and several large study areas. Many faculty members and students have expressed relief in the new building and the space it will provide.

“The Utah Legislature’s approval of funding for the new classroom building is a crucial win for UVU students, and we’re grateful for lawmakers’ support,” said President Matthew Holland. “This new facility will help ensure that students and faculty members have the physical learning tools and atmosphere that is vital to student success.”
