Tech Parks Arizona creates interactive ground, which generates, attracts and supports technology companies and talent in alignment with the goals of the University of Arizona.

Tech Parks Arizona has developed a new user-friendly interactive map giving people a bird's-eye view of the campus. Users can take virtual tours and get directions based on their interests and needs. They can also learn about the businesses and programs available at the UA Tech Park. Users can view spaces available for lease, view construction areas, share directions to specific parking lots and learn about the different amenities offered at the park like the new event center, health and wellness classes and onsite food options through this new interactive map.
