UAM Planning $9,000,000 Renovations on 2 DormsDecember 5th, 2012 by Joe Burgess
Bankston, which has “community” restrooms, will have a new front wall constructed, about 8 ft in front of the current wall, with the new space providing “suite style” restrooms. The current windows will be used as entrances to the new restrooms. Also a new roof will be added, along with a new heat and cooling system. One source told MLive, “You’re not even going to recognize the building, and the students will have much better facility to live in.”
The original 1934 bathrooms in Horsfall Hall will be the main focus of that project, making them more modern and private for students.
The new improvements are expected to be complete by the fall of 2013, and will be repaid with revenue from university housing.
