Renovation of the Gertrude Sellards dormitory at the University of Kansas is continuing despite problems with theft and graffiti.
Kansas police say since October, thieves have broken into the construction site three times and took more than $10,000 worth of copper.
People also broke into the construction site and drew graffiti.
But university officials say the project is on schedule and should be completed by July. The improved dormitory will have a living suite on each floor, more restrooms and a late night dining facility for residents.
The building has been a women's residence hall since it opened in 1955 but it will be a co-ed dormitory when it opens.
