    The residence department will seek permission to begin planning an estimated $24.3 million expansion to its Frederiksen Court student apartments on the north side of campus when the state Board of Regents meets Friday in Cedar Falls.

    Re: Frederiksen Court additions

    A schematic design for the remodeling of the MacKay Hall auditorium. The room currently seats up to 370 students on two levels; the renovation would convert the room to a contemporary, interactive classroom with seats for 215 students while respecting the room's historical character. The $3.2 million cost, approved by the board in March, would be covered with university and College of Human Sciences funds. If approved, work would begin after fall semester.
    That's gonna hurt when you're already short for auditorium space. I don't believe many general science classes are in there and Troxel is going to be full of those so where do the classes in there now go?

    But there's no reason not to expand Freddy if they can. They're full more often than not and people are willing to pay for them. I wonder if they own land adjacent to Freddy as there isn't a ton of space right now for expansion unless they convert parking lots??

    I read today that they expect 400 students to be living in temporary dens in residence halls when classes start, so yes there is definitely a need. I was wondering about where the space will come from to build them as well, the article stated they are planning on building seven more apartment buildings. Can't imagine there being that much room on the existing space.

    They could do it on existing space if they wanted to. Put a north of the 10s going towards 13th. Couple more where the pastures used to be northwest of the tunnel south of the 40s. 1 could go east of the 30s and north of the 50s??

    Now if they own the grazing land east of Haber there's all kinds of flood plane space.

    What if they expanded to the area east side of Haber road or is that a floodplain?

    I'd be ok with them moving the horses. They smell terrible after any sort of precipitation.

    Anybody know how it works if a student is forced to live in a den? Do they get some sort of break on their room and board? You may get more space if you are in a den rather an actual dorm room but you have a curtain for a door.

    They're perfect for an area directly next to railroad tracks that no one would want to live in.

    A lot of them are redone to have doors now. It's a 4 person dorm room cluster****.

    When I was in temp housing in Helser, we paid the lowest possible rate. I would imagine it would be the same until they can move you out. I am sure that the people in the dens are the first people to be moved out.

    Figuring in how many kids drop out right away, I bet the people that have to live in the dens don't have to live in there even the entire first semester.

    I just remembered that my parents told me that when they went to ISU, students lived in the hallway that wraps around hilton. That is insane.

    I bet those kids are the first to move out too. We were told we had to wait a couple of weeks because at that point they knew which rooms were going to be empty, but we were given a number based on when we applied for housing.

    They are going to knock out the parking lots inside the individual clusters and move the lots across 13th St. onto the vacant lot there that the university owns. They also will put some buildings in the horse pastures.

    They get a reduced rate based on the dorm they are in. You get a ton more space than a regular room. You have a real door, not a curtain. They will get first priority to choose a regular room on campus during the first week of classes. The DOR expects students to be in interim housing for at least the first semester.

    That's a brutal idea if true. Those buildings will be unbearable when trains go by. Living in 41 sucked enough when trains went by.

    And making parking a pain in the *** is going to be great up until the first lawsuit because some idiot gets hit by a car crossing 13th. I'm sure residents will just love the thought of a 10 minute walk just to get to their car too. Like being a freshman all over again.
