JCJ Architecture, in association with Moody Nolan, has been working in close collaboration with the University of Connecticut’s staff and student body representatives to build consensus and bring the long-awaited, new Student Recreation Center to fruition. Preliminary design workshops were comprehensive and focused on developing a foundation for the development of an exceptional facility located in the heart of the Storrs campus that delivers on a wide-range of objectives.

With UCONN’s existing 25,000 square foot facility considered inadequate for several years and with University enrollment on the rise, there was a great need for this state-of-the-art Recreation Center.
