A university whose main campus is nearly 2,700 miles away has announced plans to carve out a new services office in Tucson, Arizona.
Southern New Hampshire University is a private university based in Manchester, New Hampshire and known for its engineering, business, and arts and sciences.
The school, ranked by US News & World Report as the number one most innovative school in the country, also has a large national online enrollment.
As part of an effort to better serve those online students who live in the Western states, SNHU will build a new operations center in downtown Tucson.
That facility will be designed to house the university’s admissions, financial aid, and information technology services.
It will officially be called the Tucson SNHU Operations Center.
If all goes as planned, the new facility, which is expected to be built out of an existing, but as of yet undisclosed downtown Tucson building, will be open for business sometime in early 2020.
