CLINTON, Mississippi — Mississippi College's eight modern apartment-style housing units featuring green spaces, parking, new sidewalks and space for 189 beds should be substantially completed around July 17, school officials say.
Fall classes begin in late August.
Steve Stanford, vice president for administration and government relations, says once the bulk of the work is completed, furniture will be delivered.
Construction of the East Campus residential units is on the site of the former Clinton Junior High School.
Each of the eight new residential units will feature private rooms that share a common living room and kitchen. There will be four students per unit and 12 units per building to accommodate nearly 190 students.
Housing officials expect upper class students will begin signing up for slots in the new housing units in April.
