University of Michigan's $190 million construction project will add 1,200 residence hall beds

Feb. 18, 2022
The three residence halls will be built on the site of the Northwood III apartments, which will be demolished.

The University of Michigan has approved a $190 million plan to build three residence halls on the Ann Arbor campus

The project will consist of 1,200 beds and result in a net increase of 700 beds on campus, reports MLive

The three buildings will replace the 500 beds in the Northwood III apartments, which will be demolished. Those buildings now are being used for Covid-19 quarantine and isolation housing. 

The new housing will total 380,000 square feet.

Funds for the construction project will come from the Office of Student Life’s budget.

The project is expected to be completed by fall 2024.

Solomon Cordwell Buenz is designing the project.
