Construction is scheduled to begin soon on a massive student housing project that will transform The University of Southern Mississippi’s venerable Hattiesburg campus.
Century Park South will bring state-of-the art residence halls to Southern Miss, providing 954 beds for freshmen and other scholarship students. The $55.6 million project will feature three buildings, with five floors in each structure.
The new construction comes on the heels of Century Park North’s grand opening in August, 2010. Located just across Fourth Street and the main campus, Century Park includes four buildings with four floors and 864 beds.
To make room for Century Park South, two aging residence halls – Vann Hall and Scott Hall – were demolished. The east end of Bond Hall, which housed staff offices primarily, was also included in the demolition plan. Southern Miss officials note that the demolition process is nearing completion.
