Students to Move Into New SEMO Residence Hall
CAPE GIRARDEAU (AP) - Students will move into a new 262-bed residence hall on the northern end of the Southeast Missouri State University campus Thursday.
Construction of the $24.5 million facility was completed this summer. It features a suite-style design consisting of two double-occupancy rooms connected by a shared entrance and bathroom. Plus, students with similar academic interests and career goals will be grouped on themed floods.
The building also has common recreation and laundry facilities as well as an outdoor patio area.
The Board of Regents approved $29 million in bonds in December 2011 to pay for the residence hall project, along with a new chiller and boiler plant needed to help absorb the load from the new facility.
