St. Joseph's College plans to build a $17 million student center on its Long Island campus in Patchogue, N.Y.

The college says in a news release that the facility will be the first new building on the Long Island campus in 18 years.

“Our new Student Center project will benefit our students, faculty and staff — and the entire Long Island community,” says St. Joseph’s President Donald R. Boomgaarden.

The two-story, 32,000-square-foot facility will have a dining area, art gallery, new chapel and office for campus ministry, veterans lounge, spirit gift shop, and computer and lounge spaces.

It will also include conference areas and meeting rooms and offices for faculty, staff and student clubs, as well as a designated space for the campus’ new Esports team.

Construction is expected to begin in 2021 and anticipated to be completed within the next few years.

With dozens of student clubs and 20 NCAA Division-III athletic teams operating on campus, student life at St. Joseph's College Long Island provides students numerous opportunities to become involved.

“The new center will provide students with much-needed space,” says Janelle Hill, associate vice president for student life at SJC Long Island. “We are eager to share this new space with future generations of SJC students where they can create memories, build community and learn from one another.”
