Miami University’s Armstrong Student Center Opens

Miami University Student UnionAfter a decade of planning, the new $46 million, 203,000 sq. ft. Armstrong Student Center  facility opened it’s doors for the first time last week on the Oxford campus of Miami University. Many events were scheduled to celebrate this wonderful space, including building tours and a well attended building dedication ceremony.  The new student center is a combination of new construction and retrofitting existing structures.  The new student center is three floors and will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  The center includes a theater, offices for student organizations, meeting rooms, and several dining facilities.

A second phase of the project will create additional meeting rooms and a new dining facility. The second phase is expected to be complete by 2017.  The Kleingers Group is proud to have been part of this great achievement for Miami’s Students and Alumni alike.
