In a move to increase its number of students living on campus, the Colorado School of Mines has announced plans for the construction of a new $49 million dormitory.
The 5-story, 120,000 square-foot structure will go up on the southern end of the school’s campus at the corner of 18th Street SW and Illinois Street, and, upon completion, will house up to 400 beds.
Designed jointly by Anderson Mason Dale of Denver and the Seattle-based NAC Architecture, the new residential structure, with a glass-enclosed first floor lobby and living space, will be a part of a quadrangle that is populated with other multi-story School of Mines’ residence halls.
Plans call for the construction on the project to begin by the fourth quarter of this year, with a completion date in time for the fall 2020 semester.
The School of Mines, with a current enrollment of around 4,700 students, is a public research university specializing in engineering and applied science programs. The school’s campus is located about a mile southwest of downtown Golden, Colorado.
