    The business school was always going to be one of the larger colleges in Hartford in terms of headcount. Just look at UConn Stamford. So, was this bad planning in terms of not having enough space in the Hartford location for the business school or was it always the plan to keep it at Constitution Plaza?

    I would hope that eventually they will build out the Hartford campus and move the graduate school programs to the new campus, while also adding a CT FastTrack bus station at UC-Hartford

    What if it's just a good problem, such as higher enrollment than reasonably projected, e.g., a scenario the article suggests?

    New UConn Campus Combines The Past And Future Of Hartford


    "The front entrance to the University of Connecticut's new downtown campus now under construction is tied to the past with the fa├žade restoration of the iconic Hartford Times building standing as a reminder of the city's heyday.

    But step inside and it's all about the future.

    An atrium soaring three stories dominates the new structure rising just east of city hall in a corner of the emerging Front Street district. The atrium, now roughed out in steel and concrete, will be lined on three sides by more than two dozen classrooms when the campus welcomes nearly 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students next fall."



    Pretty great stuff from the Courant here today. Can't wait to see what the campus looks like when all is said and done
