Epicenter at the University of Utah

The Impact & Prosperity Epicenter at the University of Utah is designed to inspire and equip a diverse group of students and professionals driven by a shared vision and mission for the betterment of people and the planet.

Located in the heart of campus, the Epicenter is being developed as the newest living-learning community at the U. Residents will work alongside staff from the Center for Business, Health, and Prosperity and Sorenson Impact Center to inspire, innovate, and drive change in the world. The Epicenter is seeded by the generous contributions of anchor donations from Jim Sorenson and Robert and Lynette Gay.

The building features six stories of residential living with a variety of room typologies to suit the individual needs of students at different stages in their academic career. Residents will converge in the Forum, the dedicated gathering space that brings together a broad community of students and practitioners united by a passion for change.

Where Will the Epicenter be Located?

The Epicenter will be to the east of Lassonde Studios with the intention of generating a strong connection with the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute. The main entry to the building is located along HPER Mall on the south side of the site. View map here.
