The University of Kansas' ongoing effort to renovate its residence halls will continue in the next three years.
University officials say Jayhawker Tower D will be remodeled next year, followed by Gertrude Sellards Pearson Hall in 2011 and 2012. That hall, which currently houses only women, will become co-educational after the renovations.
Diana Robertson, director of student housing says after those renovations, work is scheduled to begin on McCollum Hall, the university's largest residence hall. That project will be completed in phases.
Renovations to Tower D are expected to cost $5.2 million, with renovations at Gertrude Sellards estimated to cost $13.1 million.
