EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) – University of Evansville administrators broke ground on a new project, a residence hall that will someday replace existing buildings.
Administrators gathered Tuesday to celebrate the news. They say this new residence hall will go in to replace two old, outdated buildings already standing on campus.
Officials say this new residence hall will have 293 units inside with updated living spaces to serve students better.
UE President Chris Pietruszkiewicz says the new building provides the amenities in a pod system. Students will have separate living rooms but also have in-suite kitchenettes and in-suite bathrooms.
Officials say they plan to have the new residence hall ready in August.
