Laramie, Wy – The University of Wyoming took a major step today in securing better technology for its campus. U-W officials broke ground on a new Information Technology Center. When finished, the 80-thousand-square-foot building will be home to the university's technical support and computer services. Wyoming's superintendent of public instruction Jim McBride says the facility will be an asset for the state and U-W students.
The university's I-T department is currently located in the basement of the 90-year-old Ivinson building. Construction is scheduled to be completed by December of next year at a cost of 35 million dollars.
