Wichita State University is calling its new residence hall Shocker Hall.
The school announced the name in a news release Monday. Construction on the 782-bed building is on schedule, and it's expected to open in time for the next year's fall semester. The release says a new 400-seat dining hall will be attached to the hall.
Besides housing most first-year students, some returning students also will live in the hall. The building will feature standard double rooms and several other configurations. Some arrangements will include living room areas.
Each floor of the building will have a laundry room, community kitchen and lounge area.
