Technology Operations Center

The 28,000 square foot facility is being constructed at 707 West Broad Street adjacent to the Technology Administration Building. The new facility will replace technology operations currently taking place at the state-owned Pocahontas Building. In April 2021, the Commonwealth of Virginia informed the university that it must vacate the Pocahontas Building by December 2023 to provide a site for the proposed Virginia Supreme Court Building. The new Technology Operations Center will serve as the primary data center and network operations hub for both the Monroe Park and the Academic Medical Center Campuses, as well as the telecommunications hub for VCU Health. As such, it will directly or indirectly support all of VCU’s and much of VCU Health’s critical operations.
