Situated at the center of the UMass Lowell campus, the 230,000-square-foot University Crossing
will serve as a hub of student activity with a large new bookstore, food court and event spaces, as well as some administrative offices. University Crossing will provide an important connection between the University’s three campuses and the downtown business and cultural district, all located within walking distance. Naming a University Crossing facility offers a great tribute to an individual, family or corporation – connecting their names to the important student activities that will be conducted in the building. The following are examples of naming opportunities that are still available.
