FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) - With the fall semester rapidly approaching, Framingham State University is preparing for the opening of its new $35.1 million dormitory later this month.

The MetroWest Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2ahhlxW ) that West Hall, conceived as a replacement for the newly-repurposed O’Connor Hall, is the second large dormitory built by the Massachusetts university within the last five years.

Officials say the 316-bed residence will offer more modern amenities that the school’s older halls are lacking.

Executive Vice President Dale Hamel says students want more private, suit-style living accommodations and West Hall allows the university to meet that demand.

Located on the western edge of FSU’s campus, Hammel says West Hall aligns with a 2008 master plan calling for residences to be moved further away from academic buildings at the center of campus.
