HUNTSVILLE, WALKER COUNTY - Sam Houston State University (SHSU) construction for the $70 million south residential district is underway. Located south of 21st St. between Ave. I and Ave. J, the project should be ready by 2016.

The newly acquired property south of campus will hold new parking lots and on-campus housing that will balance the campus residential population with the north side of campus.

The residence halls plan to accommodate approximately 670 residents, according to Denise Neu, director of facilities planning and construction.

The new district will also include a 400-spot parking lot for on-campus and commuter students, a dining hall and new pedestrian and automobile infrastructure.

Neu said that the current demolition construction is costing $472,000. Neu also said that the resident halls will cost $51.42 million and the parking lots will cost $3.46 million.

The parking lot is planned for completion in spring 2015 and the residence halls in fall 2016.
