Building Excellence

UConn is one of our nation’s top public universities, home to the brightest faculty and students who deserve the best spaces in which to live and learn. We are building state-of-the art facilities that foster imagination, cultivate relationships, and advance innovation.

UConn’s strategic Master Plan provides the blueprint for improvements that will allow our flagship University to maintain its world-class status. UCONN 2000, 21st Century UConn, and Next Generation Connecticut, the state’s newest 10-year, $1.5 billion initiative, are transforming our facilities statewide, strengthening our research and education.

The following sampling of projects in planning, design, and construction represent key investments from those initiatives for UConn’s future. For the most up-to-date information on these projects and others, including construction activity maps and quarterly construction reports please visit our website at updc.uconn.edu.

Athletics District Improvements

Athletics District Improvements

The University Athletics District Development project, slated for fall 2020 completion, replaces existing outdated facilities with new baseball, softball and soccer stadiums. The project includes a new Performance Center with new locker rooms, offices, a strength and conditioning space, and conference and support spaces. Programming, site planning, and coordination with a renovation of existing facilities at Freitas and a potential future new ice hockey arena are under review. The project conforms to Connecticut High Performance Building Code regulations and is registered as a LEED project with a target of LEED-Certified.

Northwest Science Quad

Northwest Science Quad

In 2015 the University of Connecticut completed their Campus Master Plan which set forth planning principles to guide future development on campus. Comprehensive in scope, the master plan provides the organizing structure for future campus growth and modernization. This area in the science district is one of the primary components of the master plan and contains the future site of the next new science building. The site assessment will guide that project’s development by determining the site’s capacity while supporting a landscape framework that improves the pedestrian experience and more fully integrates additional future development into the science core and the campus.
