The Belmont University in Tennessee, US has announced that it will construct a new $98m residence hall, which will be opened by fall 2022.

To be built on Caldwell Avenue, the 268,000ft2 structure will join the residential village that was created in the southern end of the campus after the completion of Tall Hall in 2018.

Upon completion, the new facility will provide shelter to more than 600 upperclassmen. The new hall will increase the residential spaces to nearly 61% of undergraduate students.

Belmont University president Dr. Bob Fisher said: “We believe our students get the best out of their college experience when they call this place their home.

“We want them right here in the heart of all that is going on, and I’m proud that we will be able to offer that opportunity to hundreds more of our upperclassmen in this state-of-the-art facility.

“I believe in our students and I believe it is so important to continue investing in and providing additional resources to support our students and help our campus grow.”

The new residence hall will feature all private bedrooms in apartment-style living. It will include a fitness centre, flexible basement space and vending area.

The building will have a two-storey lobby which will feature study and gathering areas, mail and laundry rooms and two exterior courtyards. The structure will feature exterior limestone and brick accents.

R.C. Mathews, a contractor based in Nashville, Tennessee, has been appointed by the university to deliver the project and ESa as the architect.

Belmont University in the past has added 11 residence halls in the campus, the new residence hall will add to the 3,500 residential spaces that were already built.
