Central State University is looking to invest $65 million in infrastructure projects over the next few years in an initiative titled Project Innovation, to include an expansion of student housing, a health and human services complex, and a recreation and wellness center.
Developed by University Housing Solutions, the three-story building will contain multipurpose space, common areas, interactive study nooks, a “grab-and-go” dining/lounge area and 119 beds. (View PDF article here.)
Clad in hard hats and with shovels in hand, President Dottie King, Ph.D. and the leadership of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College (SMWC) broke ground on a new $15 million residence and dining hall Thursday.
Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College broke ground Thursday on a second residence hall. The new building will be more than 49,000 square feet and will accommodate 92 beds, a dining hall and a bookstore (which is relocating from Hulman Hall).
Central State University will build a $24 million, 250-bed residence hall. The university plans to lease the complex from University Housing Solutions, which will build and own the building. A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for April 27.
“This isn’t just another project; it’s very personal to us,” Jim Schmidt, of University Housing Solutions said as he opened the groundbreaking ceremony of the Buckeye Village Student Housing project on Friday, Sept. 6.
