REXBURG, IDAHO -- Brigham Young University-Idaho has officially named its newest and largest building- The BYU-Idaho Center.

The building, set to open in January, covers 435,000-square feet, has a 15,000-seat auditorium and a multi-purpose area large enough for 10 full basketball courts.

A dedication date has not yet been set.

"The BYU-Idaho Center will be a gathering place where students will be enriched spiritually, academically, physically, and socially," said BYU-Idaho President Kim Clark. "We are grateful to have such a structure on our campus where the entire university community can come together in one place. This is a marvelous building, and we are richly blessed to have it."

The auditorium portion of the building will primarily house weekly campus devotionals and triannual commencement exercises.

The building's multi-use area will also be a place of gathering. In addition to athletic activities, the area will be used for service projects, employee gatherings, ecclesiastical meetings, academic projects, and a variety of other university needs.
