BOARD OF REGENTS APPROVES NEW RESIDENCE HALLS AND WEST DINING HALL
Houston, May 19, 2011 UH is moving on up in the ranks and, with recent decisions by the
Board of Regents, student life is gaining ground along with it. With the approval of three new
construction projects on Wednesday, May 18, the west side of campus will become energized
with student life and move the university toward its goal of becoming a more residential campus.
Research shows college students who live on campus have a more engaging college experience
and therefore are more successful and graduate at higher rates. UH has set a goal to have 7,500
UH students living on campus by 2015. To help reach this goal, the Board of Regents approved
plans for Cougar Village Phase II and a Sophomore Residence Hall to replace Cougar Place. A
new free-standing West Dining Hall was also approved during the meeting. The three projects are
expected to create an extended zone of student activity and a campus life fostering student
success.
