AUBURN – Construction is progressing well on a new residence hall at Central Maine Community College. The building, which will be the fourth residence hall on campus, will provide space for more than 150 students beginning with the fall 2007 semester, more than doubling the college’s on-campus housing capacity.

“Right now there are students from all over the state and region who would come to CM for one of our advanced technology programs if we had a place for them to stay on campus,” said President Scott E. Knapp. “This project will allow us to serve those students and help meet the needs of area business and industry as well.”

The new facility will be a four-story building located next to the three existing housing structures.

In addition to the student suites, the hall will house a function room on the fourth floor – overlooking Lake Auburn – as well as a game room and lounge. The addition of air conditioning will make the accommodations attractive for summer use and will support CM’s expanding year-round programming.
