RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Gov. Pat McCrory has signed a bill authorizing approximately $376 million of improvements for six schools in the University of North Carolina system.

A statement from the governor’s office says the money for the improvements will come from various fees, receipts, grants and fund raising income and not from tuition or taxpayer money.

The bill will help with projects at East Carolina, UNC-Chapel Hill, North Carolina State, UNC-Asheville, Western Carolina and UNC-Charlotte.

East Carolina will get the most money, $156 million, to improve the Student Union Building, the Health Sciences Campus Student Services Building and constructing a new parking structure.

UNC-Charlotte is getting $129 million to build a new residence hall, renovate four other halls and building various infrastructure.

At N.C. State, Reynolds Coliseum will get $35 million in improvements.
