State,  local and university officials broke ground Wednesday for a $38 million academic building on the Central Connecticut  State University campus.

The 75,000 square foot building, set for completion in two years,  will house the Sociology , Anthropology, Political Science, Geography, and History departments. It will have a brick exterior and copper roof.

It will be located between Davidson and Sanford Halls, and will have 17 classrooms, two computer labs, five specialized laboratories, a map room, three student lounge-study areas, 71 department and faculty offices, three general conference rooms, and five department conference rooms, along with a vending area with tables, an outdoor patio and a rainwater garden.

It will replace the Willard and DiLoreto buildings,  which are scheduled to undergo renovation once the new classrooms are ready.
