MSU Closer To Building New Dorm

BOZEMAN -

Montana State University is one step closer to starting construction on a new residence hall on campus.

MSU officials selected Montana-based Langlas and Associates as the general contractor to build a new 400 bed residence hall.

Officials said the university now has more than 15,000 students enrolled, with 870 living in the residence halls.

MSU recently converted 272 rooms from single rooms to doubles, and moved more than 200 freshmen to family and graduate apartments on campus.

Officials said a new residence hall will help relieve many of these areas.

"Our housing operations are run at about a 97 to 98 percent capacity and with enrollment increasing, this 400 bed resident hall will certainly help a lot," said Walter Banziger, MSU Facilities Director.

Officials said they will design the building over the summer and plan on breaking ground in the fall.

The residence hall is expected to open for fall 2016.
