FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Northern Arizona University is planning to increase its
on-campus housing as freshmen enrollment continues to boom.
The Arizona Daily Sun reported the Arizona Board of
Regents approved the university’s development plan Thursday, which included the
construction of an apartment-style residence hall.
The project is being called the Runke Drive Student Apartments and will add 620 beds for upperclassmen. Most of the university’s
housing has been reserved for freshmen.
Last fall, the university had a record of nearly 5,000 freshmen. The campus
contains enough university-owned housing for little more than 7,100 students.
The new project will include a fitness center, computer lab, among other
amenities and will provide enough parking for 706 vehicles.
