New Jersey Institute of Technology held an official ribbon cutting for its $110 million Wellness & Events center, the centerpiece of a $400 million campus transformation.

The event on friday officially opened the 220,000-square-foot facility which offers students access to a 5,710-square-foot fitness center, an 11,580-square-foot turf room with fitness equipment, a 25-yard pool with eight lanes as well as ample space for various programs.

“The [Wellness & Events Center] is an iconic, state-of-the-art and multipurpose building that provides large-scale space for professional conferencing, training and career fairs, as well as social settings for NJIT students, faculty and staff,” said Joel Bloom, president of NJIT.

The center provides a 3,500-seat arena and retractable grandstands that allow it to function as a convention space for job fairs or other events.

Construction of the center took roughly two years and is part of a larger campus-wide initiative to transform the campus as part of the university’s 2020 vision strategic plan.
