Plans called for a major, 3.3 acre renovation that includes Smith Plaza south of Zimmerman Library, Union Square north of the SUB and the stair transition connecting the spaces. With a budget of $3 million obtained through institutional bonds, the aim is to create a "great room" that will invigorate the Plaza for student, faculty, staff and community uses, and also to promote UNM as a destination university.
The overall goal of the project is to promote a balance of social and academic activities and provide flexibility to allow for small and large diverse groups to gather and encourage student engagement and connectivity at UNM.
