ASU to break ground on new west campus buildings

Arizona State University’s west side campus is expanding. The school has announced plans for a new residence hall and a dining facility on the campus at 51st Avenue and Thunderbird Road. The school says both projects will be publicly financed.

Groundbreaking is set for June 15 with completion set for the Fall 2012 semester.

ASU says the new $14.3 million residence hall will serve freshmen and sophomores and will double the current number of on-campus beds for resident students.

A company called American Campus Communities will build and own the residence hall.

The dining hall will cost about $9.5 million.

The university says both projects are being paid for without state funds or tuition revenues.
