Hinds CC to open two new residence halls next week

RAYMOND — Hinds Community College will open two new residence halls Monday that can accommodate 352 on its campus in Raymond.

The school says in a news release that these are the first new dormitories built on the campus in about 30 years.

The 54,000-square-foot men’s residence hall, Riggs-Virden Hall, has 196 beds. The 46,250-square-foot women’s facility, Allen-Dukes-Whitaker Hall, has 156 beds. Both are full for the fall 2012 semester that begins on Aug. 13.

The cost for the two residence hall buildings is approximately $15 million, which will be funded by a 30-year revenue bond to be repaid through student room fees.
