BEND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State University’s Cascades campus plans to house incoming freshmen at Central Oregon Community College’s former residence hall.

The Bulletin reports (https://bit.ly/20Y3GRf ) that OSU-Cascades’ initial 10-acre campus is under construction in southwest Bend. Although officials expect the academic building to be ready by fall, a dining center and 300-bed residence hall aren’t scheduled to be completed until January 2017.

OSU-Cascades Director of Enrollment Services and Student Success Jane Reynolds says the university has been looking for a place to house its freshmen since last fall. She says they considered having students stay at nearby hotels before settling on the community college dorm.

COCC’s 100-bed Juniper Hall has been empty since a new residence hall opened last fall. A committee was trying to decide how to use the building when OSU approached the college.
