University of Tampa has undergone massive campus investments in recent years. Two new high-tech buildings were completed in 2019, supporting UT students with top-quality learning facilities.
The Fab Lab will host one of the most forward-thinking visual arts programs in the U.S., offering innovation and a creative space for student and faculty inventors. The digital fabrication lab focuses on entrepreneurs, providing a collaborative maker-space to produce prototypes and products. Laser cutters, 3D printers, computer numerical control routers, large format printers and the latest computer technology will be featured for students and faculty to use in the building.
The original building was transformed from a single-storey to two-storey building with modern renovations. The project houses the expansion of career services, classrooms and modern conference spaces and new faculty offices to keep pace with additional hires of high-quality staff members. The new space supports the infrastructure of UT and provides valuable services and space for students across the university.
