(Logan-AP) -- Students at Utah State University are getting new digs.
USU is breaking ground this summer on a new 40 (m) million dollar housing project that will house 512 students.
The six new student-housing buildings are part of the first phase of USU's 20-year master plan.
The buildings will replace the campus' west faculty-staff parking lot.
The money for the project was bonded through the state and was just approved in this year's legislative session after going through the Board of Trustees and Board of Regents.
The overall plan is expected to help accommodate the steadily rising numbers of students projected to attend USU in coming years.
