It is not the biggest part of the Long Range Development Plan to add on-campus housing, but it does accommodate an additional few thousand first-year students to the residence halls.
On Friday, I got a chance to tour the facility at Tercero, one of which along with Segundo and Cuarto will add additional students.
According to the Campus Tomorrow website: “The Plan provides capacity for an additional 700 students in the Tercero neighborhood. The Tercero 4 project will accommodate an additional 500 students. Tercero 5 will accommodate another 200.”
I was wondering what this looked like, and three students were kind enough to allow the university and me to view and photograph their dormitory.
Talking to the students – they are each paying about $950 a month for the triple room, which has less space than probably half my conference room. That does not even include the cost of a meal plan.
