Future UW- Stevens Point students will be able to enjoy two newly renovated dorms in the coming years.
Watson Hall will be remodeled starting in May and Thomson Hall will follow in May 2015. UWSP says both renovations should take about seven months to complete.
Plans include energy efficient windows as well as upgrades to closets and lighting. Fire sprinkler systems will also be installed to each building.
Both dorms were built in the 1960's and remodeled in the 1990's. They are the 7th and 8th halls on campus to be renovated according to the university.
The State Building Commission gave their approval for the $13.44 millon renovation on Wednesday. It will be funded entirely by resident fees.
