Future North Dakota State University sophomores will have more living space on campus thanks to a $39.5 million construction project underway on campus for the Catherine Cater Hall.
The six-story, 395-bed residence hall will be ready for students by fall 2019, and will be dedicated to sophomores who have found themselves squeezed out of campus housing after their freshman year. The dormitory, along with other construction projects on or near campus, is meant to trim waiting lists for campus housing, and will be paid for using student housing fees.
Every floor of the new residence hall will have a study room and a lobby with seating. The suite-style double rooms will share private bathrooms and the first floor will have a double-sided fireplace for the living room and kitchen areas, a media room, game room, and large and small conference spaces.
Wells Concrete produced and erected 73,657 square feet of precast concrete for this project. Precast construction includes 414 members of insulated wall panels showcasing a thin brick and sandblast architectural finish.
