A new facility to house the Sorenson Impact Center and the Business Health and Prosperity Center builds on the commitment of the David Eccles School of Business to provide experiential learning to its students and to impact the global science enterprise community. The Impact & Prosperity Epicenter will be a new multidisciplinary hub for social impact, community engagement, and enterprise, empowering social entrepreneurs and organizations.
The building will provide housing for an international population of students participating in the center’s programs with up to 775 beds in individual room and apartment configurations. Residents will range from undergraduate and graduate students to leaders of NGOs who will come to the building for training. Living and learning will unite to form an organic social network that opens new ways of communicating and sharing developed around an assembly of spaces, nonhierarchical by design, to nurture a culture of local and global impact. There will be 90+ parking stalls to the north of the building and the project will achieve LEED Silver or above.
Construction begins in August of 2022 and will open for students in the Fall of 2024.
- Construction teams will install fencing around the project site at the end of July 2022, with construction starting in August.

- The sidewalk and bicycle path in front of the construction zone will also be closed. Pedestrians and cyclists turning onto Student Life Way from Wasatch Drive will have signage directing them around the closure.
- Disc golf holes #8 and #9 will have minor relocations.
