The Top 5 Universities Undergoing Expansion
Many of the nation’s largest universities are tackling multiple construction projects at once and it’s not uncommon to see different buildings going up at the same time on a campus.
It makes sense that some of the universities with the largest enrollment are developing even larger campuses.
New buildings for almost every field of study are being constructed. Along with that comes the need to create more living space.
From housing for undergraduates to graduates, the universities we explore will also be providing more areas for students to rest their heads.
As these young men and women embark on more complex journeys through college, they are taking more challenging courses and thus need more of the larger, specialized facilities as we’re about to explore.
So what are some of the largest university construction projects taking place near you?
We’re going to be exploring projects all around the nation. From Virginia to Washington state, New York and Texas, starting with one of America’s most desirable climates, San Diego.
