Completion of a $28 million University Village expansion project that will provide apartment-style living for about 400 freshmen will be marked with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at 10 a.m. Aug. 13 at the University of Tennessee at Martin.
Tours will follow the ceremony.
Located on the former McCord Hall site, three four-story buildings with controlled access joined the original University Village apartment-style complex in offering the privacy and amenities many students are looking for in on-campus housing. The newest complex features four floor plans with one- to four-bedroom apartments.
UT Martin Chancellor Tom Rakes will be joined by elected officials, architects, contractors and campus leadership in officially opening the complex. The public is invited to attend. The freshman move-in date is Aug. 20.
Construction of the complex, designed in a joint venture by TLM Associates Inc. of Jackson and Lyle, Cook, Martin of Clarksville, began in April 2007.
