Dixie State in Utah to Break Ground on First Campus Housing in 50 Years
ST. GEORGE, UTAH — Dixie State University will break ground this month on Campus View Suites, the university’s first student-housing complex on campus in nearly 50 years.
The project will feature 350 beds and come online for the 2016-2017 school year.
Suites at the 90,000-square-foot Campus View Suites will accommodate six students each and offer each student the option to share a bedroom with another student or have one to themselves. Each suite will include a living room space, larger kitchenette and eating space, and bathroom with sinks separate from shower/toilet rooms to alleviate congestion during heavy usage times.
Additionally, the complex will include a large full kitchen, computer area and laundry room on each floor. The facility will also feature a multipurpose room, three activity/lounge areas, an exercise room and a conference room.
Outdoor amenities will include volleyball courts, barbecue pits and grassy areas.
Nisson Towers, built in 1968, was the last student housing complex added to campus and will remain operational after the opening of Campus View Suites.
Method Studio Architects designed the project and Layton Construction will build it.
