Transcript Cougar Place residents must move out and find a new place to live before Fall 2011. Brianna Leigh Morrison BYE-BYE COUGAR PLACE Old dorms on campus demolished to make way for new sophomore living quarters By Cristi Guerra and Darlene Campos After being a home away from home to many students, Cougar Place, a residential dorm facility, will be demolished this summer, leaving students to have to find new living accommodations at an increased price. "The facility has far outlived its expected life span, and officials have decided to deconstruct Cougar Place in order to make room for future housing," University Services Communication Coordinator Lindsay Marshall said. Students living in Cougar Place paid the least amount for any campus housing, at about $471 per month for a single. Students in Moody Towers paid about $579 per month for a single and Cougar Village singles paid about $663 per month. Apartment housing on campus starts at $600 per month. "The deconstruction of Cougar Place this fall will not result in the displacement of any students. The housing agreements are for an academic year or for a summer semester, so they will have expired prior to the beginning of the project," Assistant Vice President of University Services Emily Messa said. Anthony Agi, a post-baccalaureate student studying hotel and restaurant management, has lived at Cougar Place since August. He plans on moving to Cullen Oaks during the summer due to the demolition. "I would have loved to stay here, but it's old," Agi said. "We are benefitting from cheap rates, but a lot of people complain that it is old, the air conditioning is too loud and there are roaches running around." Agi didn't mind the difficulties because of the reduced rates, but he said he is also excited to be moving to a newer location. "I have mixed feelings, other places are better, but this is cheaper," Agi said. Cougar Place demolition is planned to take place towards the end of summer 2011. Students living at Cougar Place will not be evicted due to the demolition. "No student will be evicted. How much students will have to pay now will depend on where they relocate," Executive Director of Media Relations Richard Bonnin said. "A new Campus Housing Booklet has been completed and is available online. University Services is being proactive in sharing information about housing options and is reaching out across campus to answer questions." All Cougar Place material, fixtures, and furniture that are in good enough condition will be either reused around campus or recycled. The mural, done by artist Malou Flato, will be taken down, but will be restored and installed in another campus location. A new housing complex will take the place of Cougar Place. "The University is in the programming stages for sophomore- style housing, which will be located on the former Cougar Place site," Bonnin said. "We anticipate 800-1,000 beds being available at this site, but that's a preliminary estimate. The number could easily change as plans develop." Proposals have been made to increase the total number of available beds on campus. "The administration is currently having a wide-ranging discussion of all of the issues relating to student success and residential life as we prepare to have 8,000 residents living on campus by 2013," he said. There are currently 4,031 available beds on campus, but only 2,225 of them are filled, which leaves about 57 percent vacant. News [55]
