The Student Center (UC includes UC North, UC South and the UC Satellite buildings) is the heart of student activity and offers a wide variety of useful products, services, and opportunities to meet and connect with other people. Though currently under renovation and operating with reduced services, the UC is still home to clean, comfortable lounge space; meeting rooms for conducting organization meetings, social events, and educational programs; and offices for student organizations and student organization support. When the renovation is complete in January of 2015, the UC will also be home to exciting new dining options including Freshii, new and enhanced lounge space, a wide array of meeting spaces and study rooms, and so much more.
