2015 – Planning: The university studies characteristics of 10 potential housing sites and narrows them down to one based on qualities that included the location’s size, its proximity to the core of campus, the potential impact on programs and on parking, the safety and security of the area and room for possible future expansion.
2016 – Design: After an architectural firm is selected for the project, designs for future housing, a dining commons, and open spaces will be developed.
2017 -- Construction Begins: As Kellogg Drive is realigned further to the east, construction on the new housing will begin. Shifting Kellogg Drive eastward allows the new freshman housing and the Residential Suites to form a contiguous student community.
