WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Winston-Salem State University broke ground Friday on a $10 million residence hall.

The new building will help meet the need for more housing for the university’s requirement for first- and second-year students to live on campus, spokesman Aaron Singleton said in a news release.

The building will have 44,000 square feet with 227 beds and will feature a two-tower pod concept, he said.

Each floor of each tower will hold 16 double-occupancy student rooms, two shared bathrooms and a common living space, he said.

A one-story connector building will link the two towers with common space for all residents, including a classroom for group resident instruction in a living learning community, he said.
