We’re breaking new ground on student success and we need you to continue building
Led by the spirit of UNC’s Pride of the Rockies Marching Band, more than 300 members of the university community turned out to turn dirt during the October 22 ceremonial groundbreaking for the new Campus Commons – including a surprise visit by Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper. The day was truly monumental!
“Monumental is a great word for what we celebrate today, we are, after all, breaking ground on UNC’s signature new building, the Campus Commons,” shared President Kay Norton.
President Norton, along with campus and student leadership, marked the occasion by expressing gratitude for the legislative and community investments which will ensure the Commons is built by December 2018.
“I want to say thank you for investing in the future of education at UNC,“ said President Norton. "The Campus Commons will be the intersection of many interests, all of which vital to the university. It will create meaningful connections. It will be an integrated student support hub; a gateway for campus visitors; and a modern space for our world-class arts programs.”

Announced during the ceremony, the seat campaign offers you an opportunity to name one of 600 new performance hall seats. It is your chance to be a part of campus history and leave your mark on this monumental occasion.
