Howard University in Washington, D.C., has announced plans to construct a major new residential complex. The new housing will have room for 1,360 students and will include social areas, game rooms, laundry areas, and study places.
The complex will have two-person suites for underclassmen. The new complex will also have classrooms, a meeting room that will accommodate 200 people, and will house the University’s Office of Residence Life.
Howard University President Sidney A. Ribeau states, “The addition of these state-of-the-art residential facilities will revitalize our campus and establish a physical community for students to live, learn, and socialize. By improving the quality of our housing, this project will aid in the recruitment and retention of students and enhance the overall collegiate experience at Howard University.”
The $107 million project is expected to be completed by August 2014.
