OSU To Create Housing For Sophomores

Aug 31, 2012

Ohio State University trustees are scheduled to vote today a plan to build new dormitories for sophomores.

School officials want to spend nearly 400-million dollars to create 32-hundred beds in several dorms along High Street and Lane Avenue, which would allow the university to require all sophomores to live on campus by 2015. Most of the construction costs will be covered through student fee increases. The project would include two new dining halls, recreation areas and indoor and outdoor community space.
