Valley State to rent modular units during dorm renovations
Published: June 23,2014
ITTA BENA — Mississippi Valley State University plans to lease modular housing units beginning next fall to offset a housing shortage during dormitory renovations.
The College Board approved the plan, giving Higher Education Chancellor Hank Bounds approval over any final contract.
In supporting documents, the university doesn’t list a price for the rentals, but says it will rent 50 to 150 beds for anywhere from six months to two years, putting the modular units on its campus.
Valley officials say with College Hall I undergoing renovations, they expect to lack dormitory beds for the next two years.
Last fall, MVSU rented the Three Rivers Inn & Suites and the Rodeway Inn in Greenwood to house about 100 students. Students ate in the university dining hall, with the school running shuttles to campus.
