LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - University of Wyoming officials say they are considering rebuilding some residence halls to offer more attractive amenities to prospective students.

The Laramie Boomerang (https://bit.ly/2fzzdX8 ) reports University president Laurie Nichols believes some residence halls are not as modern as those found at other colleges, which offer study rooms, green spaces, common areas and private bathrooms, among other amenities.

Eric Webb, executive director of resident life, says the university’s “old school” residence halls make it less competitive when it comes to recruitment. He says a plan to replace some buildings ideally would move forward in early 2018, with new facilities opening to students in 2020.

Officials said they are still exploring ways to pay for the improvements.
