|Student housing groundbreaking ceremony set for Tuesday, June 13|
UND students, faculty and staff are invited to the new student housing facility Groundbreaking Ceremony on Tuesday, June 13, at 1 p.m. The ceremony for the $20 million student housing project will take place near the construction site on University Avenue and Stanford Road (west of the Chester Fritz Auditorium).
Designed by JLG Architects of Grand Forks and SCB Architects of Chicago, the four-story, 108,657 square foot replacement housing complex responds to the growing trend for amenities and more personal space in student housing. The apartment-style residence will be home to 250 students and offers furnished living rooms, bedrooms and a full kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher. Each unit houses four students with either single or double occupancy bedrooms. A first floor emporium features a coffee shop with drive up access and meeting rooms.
This new building will be the first construction of housing facilities since the completion of Swanson Hall in 1985 and furthers UND's commitment to providing a quality, on-campus living and learning experience.
Expected opening is August 2007.
