Central State University has begun construction on a $33 million student center.
The university will build a 90,000-square-foot facility to house a 600-seat dining area, bookstore, computer lab, study and meeting rooms, recreational space, a theater and ballroom.
Central State received $14.5 million in 2008 from the state of Ohio for the facility. The funds allowed the university to design and engineer the building and prepare the construction site, which included demolition of Banneker Hall, road realignment and utility relocation, the school said.
The new student center is expected to open in the spring of 2014.
Central State is the eighth largest school in the Dayton region with more than 2,500 students enrolled. Referenced from BizJournals
