Union County breaks ground on UCC Student Services Building

Friday, October 10, 2014

Union County officials today held a ground-breaking ceremony for the new Student Services Center building on the Cranford campus of Union County College.
The two-story, 40,000-square-foot facility, an extensive renovation of the historic Nomahegan building, will become the hub of the College’s Cranford campus where a wide range of student services will be housed.

The $14 million project was financed by the Union County Improvement Authority. The anticipated completion date is August 2015.

We are pleased to be opening a new state-of-the-art facility that will educate a generation of our residents, raise their living standards and improve their quality of life, Union County Freeholder Chairman Christopher Hudak said.

The UCIA has worked closely with Union County College to help make this project a reality, said Daniel P. Sullivan, Executive Director of the UCIA. We’re very pleased to provide the financing and project management for this worthwhile project that will serve so many Union County residents.

The new Student Services Building will provide students with a One-Stop Enrollment Center on the first floor that will include:

Registration Services
Bursar and Payment Services
Financial Services
Disability Services
Educational Opportunity Fund Services
Counseling Services
Meeting Rooms

The second floor will house an array of computer and multi-use classrooms, math faculty and departmental offices, and support facilities.

By virtue of the commitment of the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders to this College and to County residents, we are able to provide our students with a new building that will consolidate all of the College’s student services, including admissions and registration, financial aid, student accounts, testing and advertisement. The second floor will feature faculty offices and classrooms that evince the first-class learning environment that our students expect and desire. As the first new building on the Cranford Campus in more than 20 years, the Student Services Building will become the centerpiece for the College’s renewal and revitalization, said Union County College President Dr. Margaret M. McMenamin.
