University of Louisville student center gets multi-million dollar upgrade

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A University of Louisville student center is getting a $40 million upgrade.

The university's Board of Trustees approved the renovation of the Swain Student Activities Center on the Belknap Campus Thursday.

It will add more than 32,000 square feet to the building. Plans call for an overhaul of the bookstore and updates to lobbies, lounges, and restaurants. They also include adding an outside ramp.

The money for the project is coming from private sources, facility funds, and part of the current student activities fee.

Work will begin in the spring. Renovations are expected to be completed by January of 2018.
