The Kenneth P. Burbidge Jr. Family Athletics Academic Center, which opened in May of 2001, is a national-class academic facility. Reserved for Utah's varsity student-athletes, the Burbidge Center is known for its aesthetics, technology offerings and academic service.

The 11,000-square-foot facility is campus landmark by virtue of its two-story, floor-to-ceiling curved glass wall. Its location is ideal for the population it serves: Situated between the HPER complex and the Huntsman Center, the Burbidge Center is central to classrooms and athletic venues.

The full-service academic facility is utilized by all 18 varsity Utah athletic teams and was underwritten by a generous $2 million gift from the Kenneth P. Burbidge Jr. family. The center consolidates Utah's athletic-academic efforts via computer labs, study space and academic counseling, while also providing a social gathering place for the student-athletes. Housed in the building are the academic services, compliance and nutrition departments, and the award-winning NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills program.

The mission of the Burbidge Family Athletics Academic Center is to provide an integrated learning environment that will enhance the academic and personal development of all student-athletes. The objective is to accommodate the diverse needs and schedules of Utah's student-athletes through a wide range of individual and group support services, computer technologies and independent study opportunities.
