The Ferris State University Board of Trustees today approved up to $2.2 million to help upgrade campus housing, the university said.
The university will make variety of repairs, mostly focusing on residence halls on the south end of campus and the West Campus apartment. They include painting, lighting and flooring repairs, and adding wireless internet service, Ferris said.
“Given the age of our residence hall inventory, there are always needs and challenges,” according to an executive summary of the university’s housing investment plan. “As funds become available, we look for improvements that provide the best value for our student residents and the university.”
The proposed upgrades follow a previous series of campus housing repairs totaling $1.9 million the university approved in July 2010, according to the summary.
