New Academic Building to Open in January 2016
University Hall, William Paterson’s new academic building, will open in January for the start of the spring 2016 semester, six months ahead of schedule. The $40 million facility, partially funded by the state’s Building Our Future Bond Act, includes general-use classrooms as well as specialized classrooms and clinical spaces for nursing, communication disorders, and public health. The earlier opening “results from excellent and collaborative work by the general contractor and the University’s Capital Planning Department, headed by Rick Stomber,” says Stephen Bolyai, vice president for administration and finance. Once the new building is occupied, the University will begin muchneeded renovations on the Hunziker Wing and Hunziker Hall academic buildings on the main campus, with completion of both buildings scheduled for fall 2018.
