The more than 50,000-square-foot hall will house 196 students in four stories of four-person suites.

Funding for this project will come from $8 million in revenue bonds, nearly $2.2 million in cash reserves and a $1 million payment from university funds for converting Pangburn Hall into an academic facility.

In April, the regents approved a 5 percent increase to Black Hills State's residence hall rates, a 7 percent increase in apartment rates and a 34 percent jump in parking fees for this fall.
