The North Carolina A&T State University has unveiled plans to build a new five-story residence hall, the Greensboro News & Record has reported.
The $32-million project calls for construction of a new 440-bed residence hall near the oldest part of its campus. Andrew Perkins, A&T’s associate vice chancellor for facilities, said the five-story dorm will have an interior courtyard, common areas for students to gather and ground-floor retail spaces.
The dorm will be built on Bluford St., across from Harrison Auditorium that dates to 1939.
Construction is scheduled to start in December, with completion expected by the end of 2019.
