ODESSA - The University of Texas of the Permian (UTPB) is completing the final phase of a six-phase student housing project. Phase IV will add 198 additional beds between six apartment-style buildings.

Each unit contains four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a complete kitchen, according to David Wayland, senior project manager of the University of Texas system. Students will be able to move in before the fall 2014 semester.

As a whole, the six-phase $19 million project is providing apartments for nearly 1,000 students on campus. At the start of fall 2013 semester, rooms were 100 percent occupied.

A new dormitory and dining hall are planned to begin construction in fall 2015. The UT Board of Regents gave the go ahead on the $32.5 million project as part of UTPB’s capital improvement plan.

The dorm-style living will have 300 beds and a new dining hall. The 115,000-sf building will stand three stories tall, said Wayland. The dining hall will serve 750 people and seat 350 students.
