In 2019, the university will break ground on several large projects designed to reshape the campus experience for the 8,200 students at the downtown Durham campus.
Construction includes three new residential buildings, a new business school and a $47 million student center. The buildings will replace aging structures, some of which will be demolished, according to the Observer.
The $47-million student center is expected to be a major upgrade for the student experience at NCCU, according to school officials. The center will be built on a parking area near the corner of Nelson and Fayetteville streets. Construction will begin in the next month or two, and the center should open in 2021.
