Lassonde Studios
Lassonde Studios is a new $45 million home for student entrepreneurs and innovators at the University of Utah. The facility, which opened in August 2016, is the place where students from any major or background can “Live. Create. Launch.” Students can apply to be one of the “Lassonde 400” residents. All students at the University of Utah are welcome to use the Neeleman Hangar, which is the 20,000-square-foot innovation space on the main floor to connect, test ideas, build prototypes, launch companies and learn by doing. Above are four floors of themed residential space. Lassonde Studios is in the center of campus and is advancing the University of Utah as a top school for entrepreneurship. The building and diverse engagement opportunities are managed by the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, an interdisciplinary division of the David Eccles School of Business.
