State Of The Art Commons Building Officially Opens

UNB Saint John now has a new signature building to hang their hat on as the Hans W. Klohn Commons officially opens.

The state of the art facility features study room, conference centre, and a library.

Hans Klohn was there to cut the ribbon and he tells CHSJ News he owes a debt of gratitude to the Irvings, who named the building after him.

UNB Saint John Vice President Robert MacKinnon says the project had a lot of momentum.   

He says staff and faculty were some of the first people to donate and all three levels of government provided funding.
The city donated 2 million dollars towards the 25 million dollar project.
