Posted on Feb 26, 2015 by Education

Updated plans for a new University of Iowa residence hall have it housing 200 more students and standing two to five stories taller than originally proposed, which would make it the largest student housing facility on campus, according to newly released documents.

The Madison Street Residence Hall, as it’s being called, is planned for the site of the old Iowa City Water Plant, west of the North Campus Parking Ramp and behind Burge Residence Hall on the east side of campus. It will rise 12 stories, have 1,023 beds, and cover 303,000 gross square feet, according to designs, which the university plans to present to the Board of Regents in March.
