Construction began in the '08-'09 school year.

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Tuesday the doors opened to UW-Eau Claire's newest addition...Centennial Hall.

With most of the move in completed, classes started Tuesday in the new $44.5 million building.

The school says the building is now home to one college, four academic departments and several student support offices.

It says the building is UW-Eau Claire's first new academic building since 1983.

The Dean of the College of Education and Human Services says it'll be fun to see how the students and teachers use it.

Gail Scukenec says, "one of the fun things over the next few weeks and months will be to watch students and see how they use the facility, and faculty as well because we have lots of opportunities that we didn't have before...so it's going to be fun to see how that plays out, and how people begin to use it."

She says construction on Centennial Hall started back in the 2008-2009 school year.
