|Student housing groundbreaking ceremony set for June 13|
UND students, staff, and faculty are invited to the groundbreaking ceremony for new student housing Tuesday, June 13, at 1 p.m.
Located on University Avenue, between Stanford Road and State Street, this unique housing facility marks the next chapter in UND’s commitment to providing quality living and learning experiences for students.
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 270 students and will offer furnished living rooms, bedrooms and a full kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher. Each unit will house four students with either single or double occupancy bedrooms. The first floor emporium features a coffee shop for the campus community 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. The residence is slated for opening in August 2007.
