Georgetown’s Southwestern U. to Build New Residence Halls, Football Stadium
Southwestern University, in Georgetown, is moving forward on an ambitious building program, including residence halls and a sports complex. Combined, the projects are estimated to cost more than $100 million.
Besides rebuilding new residence halls, the 183-year old university also plans to renovate Mood-Bridwell Hall, which houses the Brown College of Arts and Sciences, and build a mixed-use baseball and softball stadium along with a football stadium. The school, which currently has 1,500 students, will also be adding a amphitheater.
Construction of the new facilities is set to start in May 2023 and be completed in the fall of 2025. The university plans to work on the projects simultaneously. Bonds will fund $80 million of the improvements, philanthropic gifts the other $20 million.
