In just a few short months, Lynn’s newest building, the Christine E. Lynn University Center, will be bustling with activity. Opening in early 2019, the center will be students’ new home for socializing, dining and collaborating. Among its gleaming new spaces will be a dining hall, Christine’s café, mailroom, living room, campus store, meeting rooms, conference rooms, career center, Social Impact Lab and student affairs offices.
The campus community has looked forward to the center’s opening since Oct. 21, 2015, when President Kevin M. Ross announced Mrs. Lynn’s $15 million challenge gift for the center in his state of the university address. Since then, more than 100 additional donors have contributed to the 65,000-square-foot center, matching Mrs. Lynn’s gift.
“All of our planning, discussions, architectural design and construction are culminating in this magnificent building at the heart of campus."

“All of our planning, discussions, architectural design and construction are culminating in this magnificent building at the heart of campus,” said Gregory J. Malfitano ’73, ’75 senior vice president for development and administration. “We’re so grateful to Mrs. Lynn and all our donors for making this center possible.”
Now, just 18 months since the center’s April 2017 groundbreaking, the finishing touches—flooring, painting, millwork, furnishings and landscaping—are underway. Read more about the center at lynn.edu/ucenter.
