HBU - Academic Center (UAC) began as a 15,000 sf metal building for the Art Department. During the recent growth of HBU, the building quickly evolved to the 40,000 sf – UAC that now houses portions of the Administrative offices, Art Department and Husky newspaper team. Also designed are Art Galleries to exhibit not only the work of the HBU students but work of the HBU award winning art faculty as well. Mid-size Lecture classrooms and individual Art studios adorn the balance of the building area.

The building sits on the site of a former detention pond/fill area and drastically improves the image of the campuses North section that abuts some aging commercial properties. The exterior features detailed brick veneer & cast stone with a bitumen roof and two upper clerestories clad with metal roof panels. The clerestories allow an abundance of natural light during studio hours that resonates throughout the Art studio. The interior entry features an expansive 2-story Entry Lobby, Art galleries and multiple classrooms, offices and studios.
