Plans Announced for New Residence Hall

New Residence Hall

Following back-to-back years of record-breaking enrollment, resulting in 99 percent occupancy of on-campus housing, the university announced plans for a new residence hall to be completed in time for the 2015-16 school year.

The three-story building is expected to cost between $6.5 to $7 million, and will house around 150 students in mostly double occupancy rooms with lobby areas on each floor.

Plans call for groundbreaking on Dec. 15, 2014, and completion of the new facilities by August 2015 – just in time to welcome the Class of 2019 to campus.
