Board of Regents to Examine University Dorm Funding

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --
   The University of Iowa and Iowa State University are rushing to build more dormitories as high enrollment causes soaring demand for student housing.
   Documents from the Iowa Board of Regents show Iowa State is seeking approval to build an estimated $50 million residence hall project to house 700 students.
   Construction in Iowa City continues for a $53 million residence hall project for 500 students. It's scheduled to open in 2015 and is the university's first new dorm in more than 40 years.
   The Des Moines Register reports the universities have spent millions to lease off-campus apartment buildings due to a boom in enrollment over the years.
   The Regents will meet Thursday to discuss financing to complete the new UI dorm. They will also discuss the ISU project.
