It has 727 beds, hosts several specialized learning communities, and features study lounges and an Innovation Zone with a 3D printer for students’ use.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, UConn President Susan Herbst, legislative and university leaders, Jonathan the Husky dog, and students are participating in the ribbon-cutting ceremony, set for 11:30 a.m. in the eastern patio area at 2378 Alumni Drive in Storrs.
