USC unveils $191 million plan for new dorms

The University of South Carolina’s trustees heard and approved -- in concept -- a plan today to spend almost $200 million over the next decade to change the face of student housing on the school's Columbia campus.
As part of that plan, a half-dozen dorms -- including The Roost -- would be demolished and a half-dozen new dorms would be built. Other dorms would be renovated.
By 2011, the university would have 1,100 more beds for students than it does now.
The $191 million project would be paid for by revenue bonds and students' housing fees.
While the board approved the general plan, each demolition and construction will have to come before the board individually for approval as work begins.
