CMA To Begin Construction On $15.1M Residence Hall
Times-Herald staff report
Vallejo Times Herald
With some students living on board the Golden Bear training ship and others living off campus, California Maritime Academy is in dire need of more dormitories, the school says.
Construction of a new $15.1 million residence hall will soon get underway to help meet that need.
When completed in 2009, it will provide campus living space for 132 more students, said spokesman Doug Webster.
CMA's current residence halls can house just under 450 students while nearly 70 more live on board the training ship, Golden Bear. Several hundred more students live off campus.
Student housing fees will finance construction of the new hall which is slated for a parcel on the upper campus, across from the school's Bodnar Field athletic area.
Students living on campus now pay about $2,000 per semester, said CMA budget officer Steve Mastro.
Those fees are slated to increase soon by at least 5 percent, he added.
Construction of the three-story stucco-faced structure will begin in 2008, with completion targeted for the start of the 2009-2010 academic year, Webster said.
