The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNC Greensboro) has broken ground on its new Nursing and Instructional Building.
The 180,000-sq.-ft. facility received funding from the Connect NC Bond, which was passed by North Carolina voters in the spring of 2016. The $105-million building will house 39 labs, 14 classrooms, nine research suites and a community engagement center.
The School of Nursing, currently located in four buildings, will occupy approximately 50 percent of the building. In addition to providing more space for the School of Nursing, the facility will provide teaching and flexible laboratory research space for the School of Health and Human Sciences and the Departments of Biology and Chemistry, as well as classroom space.
The Nursing and Instructional Building will be located on the former site of the McIver Building, which was demolished earlier this month. The project is slated to open in the summer of 2020.
