Excellent news… the Student Union at the Boca Raton campus is set to expand its current footprint of meeting and event space. The planned expansion is slated to begin in the fall of 2018 and has an estimated completion date in the first quarter of the year 2020. The overall new footprint will include the addition of a new banquet facility, increased dining and mercantile options, along with more flexible event space and enhanced services for students.
A new 33,000 square foot community banquet hall will be built along Volusia Street between the current Student Union and Parking Garage 1. The facility’s unique and modern design features a spacious pre-function lobby, a customizable venue that can seat up to 1,000 guests with indoor and outdoor collaborative meeting areas. The intention of this space is to encourage our student and Palm Beach county communities to come together and create experiences that they will never forget.
