WEST HAVEN: A state-of-the-art academic building at the University of New Haven, is set to open in 2019, and will be named after Samuel S. Bergami Jr. and Lois Bergami, longtime university benefactors.
The 40,000-square-foot facility will support a building housing a maker space, cutting-edge science classrooms, communications studios, advanced “smart” classrooms, an atrium/cafe, and multidisciplinary student and faculty collaboration space.
The new facility will be adjacent to Beckman Hall, housing the Tagliatela College of Engineering to service as a primary point of student contact around the University interested in entrepreneurship and innovation. It will serve as a main destination of resources for students to develop and test ideas next to peers with help from faculty, alumni and corporate partners.
The Bergami’s have made numerous contributions to the university including: the Samuel S. Bergami Jr. Learning Center for Finance and Technology, the Bergami Family Fitness Center, The Bergami Family Lecture Hall and Bergami Hall which is a 66,000-square-foot facility serving as a residence hall and housing administrative offices.
