Morgan State’s Board Of Regents Approves Plan For New On-Campus Housing By Fall 2022 – CBS Baltimore
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Students at Morgan State University will have the option to stay in new apartment-style, on-campus student housing starting in the fall of 2022.
The university’s Board of Regents unanimously approved a plan for the college to entered into an agreement with the Maryland Economic Development Corporation to build new dorms. The dorms, slated for completion in fall 2022, would accommodate 700 to 900 students.
The new dorms would be located on MSU’s South Campus, adjacent to the site of the Thurgood Marshall Apartment Complex.
“Morgan is growing, and with the continued increase of new enrollment coupled with the University’s high retention rate, the need for more student housing on campus has never been greater,” said David Wilson, president of Morgan State University. “The Board’s recognition of the challenges the University faces in meeting the needs of our students, and their support to take bold action now, will benefit scores of future scholars seeking a complete college experience in a contemporary campus environment and choose to pursue their educational aspirations at Morgan.”
Once the new residence halls are completed, the university will begin plans to demo the aging Thurgood Marshall Apartment Complex.
The space, where the complex once stood, will be converted to green space for all of the campus community to enjoy, the university said.
