The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor board of trustees approved construction of a 46,000-square-foot residence hall on the north side of the campus. The three-story facility will offer dormitory-style housing for up to 214 students. UMHB’s strategic plan for 2011 through 2018 calls for the university to provide campus housing for at least 65 percent of its full-time undergraduate students. Plans call for construction of the residence hall to begin this spring, with the goal of having the project completed and ready for use for the fall 2018 semester.
