Home for Innovation. Room to Grow.

The Francis X. and Nancy Hursey Center for Advanced Engineering and Health Professions will transform the campus and meet the needs of high-caliber, dedicated, and deserving students for years to come.

The Hursey Center, a 60,000-square-foot academic building in the academic quad, houses new, specialized, and technology-rich facilities for our growing programs in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture; and the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions. The project also includes renovations to two existing spaces—Dana and UTC Halls—and will also account for the increased need of classroom space for many general education courses offered through the College of Arts and Sciences.

The placement of the Hursey Center intentionally creates a series of gathering spaces around the building and across the quad, which is so large that we rarely seize the opportunity to utilize this space. A green roof will aesthetically blend the building with the surrounding environment, while showcasing the many environmentally friendly features contained within.
