James Madison’s enrollment is increasing exponentially. Consequently, expanding the amount of campus housing is a necessity. In early 2018, ground was broken to make way for a new residence hall. The new residence hall, neighboring Convo Lot F, is being built for a 500 bed capacity. Due to its off-campus location, a land bridge will be built over Driver Drive, to adjoin the Skyline section of campus to the new residence hall to allow its residents to feel connected to the JMU community.
The total cost of the project is $47.8 million dollars and is anticipated to house new residents in Fall of 2019. WM Jordan was awarded the contract for the project.
