Harrison Libraries Expansion and Renovation Project was completed in 2017. During this year-long project, an 8,300 square-foot addition was added to the north side of the Mortensen Library and the ground floor became the new home of the Allen Library. Together, the two libraries form the Harrison Libraries, named after the University of Hartford’s former president, Walter Harrison.
