CLINTON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi College officials expect students will move into the eight new residence halls in mid-August.

Jim Turcotte, vice president for enrollment services and dean of students, says in a news release that the modern apartment-style units represent the first new residence halls at Mississippi College in two decades.

The bulk of the construction activity will be wrapped up in late July.

They were built on the former site of Clinton Junior High School. MC spent $16 million on the project.

University Place is situated nearby buildings that house MC Art Department graduate school classrooms and offices.



Turcotte says the dormitories are a much-needed addition to on-campus housing that’s been squeezed for space because of rising enrollment for more than a decade.
