Arkansas Tech ready to unveil new dorm this fall

Posted: Updated:

RUSSELLVILLE - Arkansas Tech's newest dorm is on schedule for students to move in for the first time this fall.

M Street Residence Hall, a new five-story housing facility, will be home for 290 students beginning next month.

Aaron Hogan, associate dean for residence life at Arkansas Tech, reports that the beds were delivered and installed last week. Lobby furniture will begin arriving on Thursday and the mattresses will be delivered the first week in August.

Once the washers and dryers are installed in the M Street Residence Hall basement laundry room in mid-August, the facility will be ready to house students for the first time.

Freshmen will move in on Aug. 24, followed by returning students two days later. Male students will be on the first, third and fifth floors and female students will be on the second and fourth floors.

With the addition of M Street, ATU will be able to house around 3,000 students - more than triple the number who lived on campus 15 years ago.

Classes for the fall 2013 semester at Arkansas Tech begin on Aug. 28.
