SPRINGFIELD, Mo. For the first time in the last 30 years, Missouri State University has been opening a new residential hall under construction.
Holland House is under construction. It will open this fall.
The concrete parking garage part is up. And now teams are working on the wooden frame for the living areas above. The university recently updated the progress of construction. Project managers report that the fifth floor inspection failed. Structural engineers are now working on a solution.
Enrollment grew in Missouri State University for the past 15 years. And so the need for housing on campus.
Holland House will include four parking levels. And there will be three floors with a 408 bed hall in the residence. First floor food and retail. Pupils will also understand the outdoor living space.
"It is still in the design, in terms of what we will be there, but I can see that there are some turns out there, grills, outdoor space, which is very similar, and protected," Gary said. Stewart, USC Residential Life Director. "So I think it will be a nice nice draw for him."
The Hutchens House was the new MSU residential hall built in 1990. The school purchased Monroe Apartments in the last few years. He also renovated many other dorms.
