HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The University of Connecticut has signed an agreement to spend $4 million to renovate and lease space inside the Hartford Public Library.
The space will become part of UConn’s $140 million Hartford regional campus, which is moving from suburban West Hartford and is scheduled to open downtown in the fall of 2017.
Most of the campus will be located inside the former Hartford Times building, which includes a five-story classroom addition that is currently under construction.
The school will use about 12,000 square feet in the library across the street for three 48-seat classrooms, a digital media center, spaces for tutoring services, private study lounges and storage for collections.
Another classroom and computer lab in the building will be created primarily for use by the library.
