Going up

     Construction has begun on the new student center, located at the
corner of Main Street and South College Avenue on the Newark campus.
The design of the building includes a main concourse level occupied by
a food court, a box office, a copy center, a large multipurpose room
with seating for 700 persons and suitable for concerts and an adjunct
book store. Below will be a lecture hall/movie theatre. More lounges
are planned for the second floor, along with meeting rooms
accommodating 15 to 250 people, student organization offices and a
restaurant managed by the University's Hotel, Restaurant and
Institutional Management Program.The existing neo-gothic Daugherty
Hall will be integrated into the new building, as a quiet study lounge
above a student recreation area. Completion is expected by spring
1996. The first part of the $27 million project, a four-level parking
garage, opened this spring.
