The proposed cost of a single is
$3,000 to $3,050 per semester, said
Rick Bradley, assistant director of
housing and residential education.
A single room in a dormitory
runs at $2,900, and a double goes
for $2,190, Bradley said.
The rates are comparable to high
er-end off-campus apartments.
A private bedroom in a simi
larly equipped apartment utili
ties included in The Warehouse
costs $595 per month, or $2,380
for the equivalent of a semester.
As many students living in
Hinton James and Craige residence
halls this year can attest, the mas
sive construction project has cre
ated a noisy living environment.
“It’s a little noisy in the morning
and wakes me up on occasion,” said
Dave Lorance, a sophomore living
in Hinton James.
“But the construction itself is not

Lorance said he likes the apart

But that project and others are
a work in progress to make South
Campus a more attractive place to
live, Bradley said. He pointed to
the recent addition of the Rams
Head Center as an example.
Students will be able to view a
model apartment later this semes
ter, Hicks said. He said it is impor
tant for students to get a feel of the
rooms before the recontracting
process begins in March.
The entire project will cost SB7
million, up from the fall 2003 esti
mate of S7O million, Hicks said.
“What’s impacted this project
mostly is the rising cost of steel,
concrete and labor,” he said. “The
statewide bond projects are taxing
the availability of resources.”
The completion of Ram Village
by fall 2006 and the reopening of
Morrison Residence Hall in 2007
will bring the number of undergrad

four years ago there were 6,800.
