BREAKING: Rose-Hulman breaks ground for new residence hall

TERRE HAUTE — Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology broke ground today for the construction of a new residence hall on the west side of campus. The residence hall, which will feature apartment- and suite-style rooms, will provide space for upperclass students who now live off campus due to space limitations.

It also will house sophomores.

“Every student who wants to live on campus will be able to live on campus,” said Pete Gustafson, vice president of student affairs.

Rose-Hulman is home to 1,900 undergraduate and 100 graduate students majoring in engineering, science or mathematics, according to the school’s website.

The $17-million project — four floors with 240 beds spanning 75,000 square feet — is expected to be open for the 2012-13 school year.
