The Lassonde Studios will be the home for student entrepreneurs and innovators at the University of Utah. The new facility will be the place where students from any major or background can “Live. Create. Launch.” The building will combine 412 residences with a 20,000-square-foot “garage,” where students can connect, test ideas, build prototypes, launch companies and learn by doing. Students will move in starting fall 2016. The unique space will be in the center of campus and advance the University of Utah as a top school for entrepreneurship and innovation. The building and diverse engagement opportunities will be managed by the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, a division of the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah. Learn more at
