UNE moves forward on Portland medical campus, breaking ground on health sciences center

The University of New England has broken ground on its Portland Campus’s Harold and Bibby Alfond Center for Health Sciences. 

The project’s projected cost is $93 million. It is made possible by a gift of $30 million from the Harold Alfond Foundation — the largest gift in the university’s history. Another $5 million was endorsed by U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, in federal appropriations.

The current plans call for the new facility to be 110,000 square feet. The project is expected to be completed in time for the 2024–25 school year. Read more
