Indiana University Southeast breaks ground for first dormitory


Indiana University Southeast officials have broken ground for the school’s first dormitory.

The campus housing is “the realization of a dream,” said IU President Adam Herbert at a groundbreaking ceremony Wednesday.

The $17.8 million project, which Herbert said came in under budget, calls for five lodges to house a total of 403 students.

Officials at IUS long have talked about having residence halls as a way to transform the 60-year-old commuter campus with an enrollment of about 6,200.

State Rep. Bill Cochran, a New Albany Democrat, said that when dorm is built, IUS will be the only public university in southeastern Indiana to offer campus housing.
