The walls are going up on St. Lawrence University's new $13 million residence hall that will help alleviate a campus student housing crunch.
The 45,000 square foot building will be able to house up to 155 students in a total of 81 single, double and triple-rooms when it opens in the fall of 2014. It is being built on the former road and parking lot between the Quad and Noble Center.
The state of the art dorm will include a geothermal heating and cooling system and will have a glass bridge connecting two sections of the building and a café. The university has raised nearly $5 million in private donations to help pay for the construction.
Northland Construction of Liverpool is the general contractor for the project.
