Construction wraps up on Century Park South on USM campus

Posted: Updated:
HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The finishing touches are being made on two new residence halls in Century Park South on USM's campus. 

The two new halls, Lucky Day Citizenship Hall and Vann Hall, will house 511 students. They are located between Century Park North and the Thad Cochran Center, placing them conveniently near the dining facilities on campus. The residence halls will provide predominantly freshmen housing.

"Something new with these buildings is the centrally-located student kitchen lounges,"said Scott Blackwell, director of USM's Department of Residence Life. "So the idea is community-building occurring in those lounges. And that's something brand new for all of our buildings, we don't have that anywhere else."

The suite-style dorm rooms will be ready for students to move in by August 15. A third residence hall, Scott Hall, will be complete by January and will also house a new full-service student health center.
