Sacred Heart University has entered into an agreement with Verizon for the creation, management and operation of the iHub, an innovative coworking space on our West Campus, formerly corporate headquarters for General Electric. Sacred Heart University is proud to be the first University to have partnered with Verizon to establish a coworking space on a college campus. 

The iHub is a center devoted to a new kind of student-faculty-business alliance.  It is a unique environment where students, corporations, small businesses and faculty can work together to fuel creativity and innovation.  Businesses can collaborate with students and faculty through internships, team projects and other experiential learning programs. This collaboration will help students develop the essential problem-solving and critical-thinking skills that are integral to their success. 

Benefits of an iHub Membership at West Campus:

Career Development has an office on-site in the iHub, and will provide support to iHub members in securing a SHU student for an internship.  We can work with you to provide support in strategic planning and internship placement, and assist with tailoring your job descriptions, follow-up mentoring and support throughout the internship both for you and your interns! 

As an iHub member, you will have the opportunity to participate in job and internships fairs, and recruiting events held on campus.  Want to you’re your event in the iHub? You can do that too!
