parking deck and student housing at SPSU
The five-level parking deck will alleviate stress from the parking shortage at the University due to increasing student enrollment and massive construction projects.
Last year, the Student Government Association approved a $75 increase to the student transportation fee to help cover the cost of construction. Because the fee is mandatory, students will not incur additional costs to park; however, staff and faculty who wish to park there will be required to pay.
The Hornet Residential Village will include 600 beds in suite-style units, 10 special-interest housing units containing 12 beds each, and a 284-seat dining hall. For more information on the event, contact the Office of Advancement at ext. 7351.
