Explore the UC

Come inside Adelphi’s new hub for campus life –a beautiful new centerpiece of campus, renovated and redesigned to fit the needs of our community today.

Despite the challenges of construction during a global pandemic, the new University Center (UC) is complete—and opens its doors to the community on January 18, 2021. We welcome you to explore our new light-filled UC—either in person or by viewing the photo galleries—and discover our beautiful new lobby and meeting spaces, improved student lounge, the reimagined Thomas Dixon Lovely Ballroom, our full-size Starbucks, expanded Dining Hall and outdoor terrace. More photos will be added of our expanded art gallery, new Adelphi Bookstore and other spaces as they become available.

See You on the Third Floor

The new Multicultural Center and Mindfulness Center, both on the UC’s third floor, are designed to bring the Adelphi community together. The former supports Adelphi’s diverse community and the latter offers a space to relax, meditate and reflect.
