New residence in the works

The ground has just been broken at Western's newest home away from home, slated to open next summer.

"Construction is underway," said Dave Riddell, senior director for physical plant and capital planning services at Western, noting the new residence will house its first wave of students in the fall of 2003.

The new residence, which has yet to be named, is part of Western's preparations for the double cohort.

"It's for the expansion of student enrollment,' said Riddell.

Riddell said the residence will have 445 beds and is being built by Southside Construction in front of Althouse College on the south side of campus. He added that the building will have a unique design compared to pre-existing residences here.

There will be single and double room units and a washroom for every four beds, he said. The building will also include a dining area, as well as study lounges.
