STAMFORD, Conn. -- The University of Connecticut is seeking proposals from developers to build housing for about 400 students on its Stamford campus.
The housing expansion is a part of a $1.5 billion spending package to upgrade and expand all three of UConn's campuses that was signed by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy in June. The Stamford campus, located at Broad Street and Washington Boulevard., is primarily attended by commuters.
One option would be converting UConn's parking garage across from the main building into housing, but the university will consider other ideas as well. The budget for the project is about $10 million.
The plans should include housing that would cost about $800 per month per student, be within a 20-minute walk or 15-minute public transportation commute, and range from one- to three-bedroom units with space for living rooms and kitchens. A dining hall is not required.
Over the next 10 years, enrollment at the UConn-Stamford is expected to double and its programs in digital media and risk management are expected to expand.
All requests for expressions of interest must be received by Friday, Jan. 17, at 4 p.m.
Any questions should be directed in writing to email@example.com on or before 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 23.
