Construction Update

New Residence Hall


Over the past month, work on the New Residence Hall has continued to progress well despite challenges caused by several storms. The demolition of Morgan/Hall 22 and Dewey/Hall 23 is complete.

Construction of retaining walls is now underway, starting first along Huntsinger Circle. This work, along with the construction of foundations, will continue throughout the spring semester. Grading operations will commence at the beginning of April.
