The Board of Regents approved a plan to build two new residence halls in order to increase the number of beds available to students living on campus as part of the school’s capital improvement plan.

The approved plan will bring two residence halls to campus as part of a multi-phased project. The first of those residence halls would be finished by summer 2018 with the second one expected to finish the year after if the enrollment growth continues. Each residence hall, according to the plan, will have 500 beds.

The budget for this project, which is based on the successful construction of the newly opened Rawlins Hall, will be $93 million. Because it is a multi-phases project, the first building will require $44.8 million and the second $48.2 million. Rawlins Hall had an approved budget $37.1 million.

Out of the 6,216 beds available on campus, 6,199 were in use as of the twelfth day of class, causing the residence halls to be at almost full capacity, according to the regents’ website. The school’s master plan details the administration’s desire to increase the bed count to 9,600.

Locations and names for the residence halls are not known yet as the plan was just only approved.
