New honors dorm approved by Tech Regents

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Approval was given to build a new Honors Dorm on the Tech Campus in Thursday's Texas Tech Regents meeting.

Chancellor Hance tells NewsChannel 11 that enrollment is up so much, Texas Tech needs more dorms and they plan to build an honors dorm as soon as 2011.

This approval means Weeks Hall and the Doak Conference Center will be demolished to create more space for the new dorm, along with renovation of the Wiggins Dining Center.

Regents also approved the expansion of the football stadium on the east side.

NewsChannel 11 will have more on this coming up on the news at 6.
