The UConn-Stamford residential dorm is now open. I was proud to join UConn President Susan Herbst, Gov. Dan Malloy, Reps. Terrie Wood, Pat Miller and Caroline Simmons, Sens. Tony Hwang, Toni Boucher, Bob Duff and Carlo Leone, and other officials at the official opening yesterday morning. The new, 6-floor facility will feature 116 units including 10 studios, 57 two-bedrooms and 49 one-bedroom units, with a target occupancy of 290 students.
This is a great moment for the school as it continues to expand its presence in southwestern Connecticut, and certainly for the students who now have access to this state-of-the-art facility. Congratulations to the university and the city of Stamford!
