BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The University of Vermont is set to break ground on a new, $95 million multi-purpose center that will upgrade many of the school’s athletic facilities, some of which are more than 50 years old.

Officials held a ceremonial ground breaking ceremony on Saturday for the project that will include construction of a new home to UVM’s men’s and women’s basketball programs, as well as host a variety of academic, social, cultural, and entertainment programming.

There will also be a major renovation of the historic Gutterson Fieldhouse, home to the men’s and women’s hockey programs.


Actual construction is expected to begin as early as next week.
