New, renovated buildings open at University of Tampa
The classrooms are finished, faculty offices are in use, weight rooms are stocked. It was time to celebrate Thursday at the University of Tampa, where school officials dedicated the Health Sciences and Human Performance building and rededicated the adjacent athletics center. Following construction and major renovations, the center's locker and weight rooms have doubled in size, and there is more than twice as much space in the training room. Combined, the sites have more than 110,000 square feet of classrooms, offices, laboratories and athletics space. Renovations to the athletics center began this spring; construction at the health sciences building began in June 2011.
