Tahlequah, Okla. — A project that consists of construction of one new residence hall and renovations of two existing residence halls is under way on campus at Northeastern State University. The new construction, the first in 13 years, will build 344, semi-suite-style beds. Renovations of Wyly Hall will upgrade the exterior shell and interior spaces including lobbies, lounges, restrooms and individual student rooms. Wyly Hall has 134 traditional residence hall living spaces within 26,452 square feet. In addition to the surface renovations, the mechanical systems will be updated to more energy efficient equipment. Leoser Hall renovations will focus on mechanical equipment and spaces that deliver heating, cooling and hot water to the approximately 600 residents. The Regional University System of Oklahoma (RUSO) Board approved the $15 million project through the Oklahoma State Regents of Higher Education's Real Property Master Lease Program.
