FAMU Breaks Ground on New Residence Hall

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Florida A&M University (FAMU) recently broke ground for a 700-bed residence hall that is scheduled to open in August 2020.

FAMU New Residence Hall

The housing project is expected to have two four-story H-shaped residential structures amounting to 183,496 square feet, with 366 units, 700 student beds, and shared amenity spaces including kitchens, laundry, and study areas, as well as lounge and game rooms. Due to three residence hall closures that will take place next year, the new living quarters will replace beds for current and future students.

FAMU President Larry Robinson says the $125 million-federal loan to address student housing projects will allow construction on the new residence hall to get underway this month.
