The University will unveil an advanced-capacity Information Technology (IT) building and Data Center, housing the equipment and systems to support the computing, research, information, storage, and telecommunications services for the University at Albany.
The state-of-the-art facility will serve as the primary facility for Empire State College and as backup for Hudson Valley Community College. It also holds potential for increased shared service partnerships with additional SUNY campuses.
