University of Wyoming housing officials recommend new dorms

September 22, 2018

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — University of Wyoming officials may recommend that the state build new dormitories capable of housing 2,000 students.

The university’s Housing Task Force is drafting a report for state lawmakers to review during the next legislative session.

The Casper Star Tribune reports that the initial draft proposes a variety of housing styles at different costs.

The recommended styles include traditional double rooms, double rooms with private bathrooms, two or four-person suites and larger “pods” that include living space and a bathroom for roommates to share.

Officials said this week that the university will be able to issue bonds for state-backed construction of the new dormitories.

Locations have not been determined yet. A subcommittee plans to propose locations at the task force’s October meeting.
