The University of Connecticut is seeking bids for a private hotel, which will be built on the corner of Route 195 and South Eagleville Road, according to a UConn Today article. The space is currently occupied by the university-owned Mansfield Apartments.

UConn will lease the land to a private operator, allowing for an independently owned and operated 100-room hotel to be built, according to the article. The hotel will not have any affiliation with the university.
