At UMass Boston, we envision a campus environment that includes state-of-the-art facilities for students and faculty to create forward-thinking teaching, learning and research. To this end, we are proud to announce the opening of our newest state-of-the-art lecture space for students and our community located in University Hall.

With your generous gift, you can add your name or inspirational message to a plaque that will be prominently featured on the back of a seat located in this student epicenter, demonstrating to one and all your belief in the life-changing education at UMass Boston. As of March 2017, over 295 seats have been named. 

Sponsorships are available at three levels:

  • Front Left or Right sections (Center is sold out!) – $500  
  • Back Center section – $350
  • Back Left or Right sections – $250
