The first phase of the 161,000-square-foot structure will be at the corner of Mario Capecchi and South Campus drives. It's expected to house 310 students and resident advisers. It will have a commons area and meeting places...

Utes to bulk up football facilities

Utah football coach Kyle Whittingham likes to show off the University of Utah’s stadium, the indoor practice facility and the weight room to recruits. But when the tour stops at the football offices and team complex, he prefers to show them a bit of the future and not the present...

University of Utah expanding on-campus student housing


http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...t-housing.html

SALT LAKE CITY — The University of Utah is going through a housing boom, of sorts.

About six years ago, the U. was struggling to find students to fill its dorms.

“If we would have taken all of our vacancies on campus and put them all in one building, it would have amounted to one building that would have been vacant,” said Jerry Basford, associate vice president for student affairs.

Now, the U. can’t build dorms fast enough...

UW chooses University of Utah's Michael Young as its new president

The Seattle Times
By Linda Shaw, Bob Young and Katherine Long
Quote:
The University of Washington has chosen Michael Young to be its new president, according to sources familiar with the search.

The sources, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told The Seattle Times on Friday that Young, 61, president at the University of Utah since 2004, is the choice of the UW Board of Regents. The regents are expected to make the announcement Monday....

....The University of Utah is the state's oldest and largest higher-education institution. As of last fall, it enrolled 23,000 undergraduate and 7,000 graduate students.

The UW has 43,000 students on its main Seattle campus, of which 28,000 are undergraduates. Including its branches in Tacoma and Bothell, it has 49,000 students.
http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...uwprez23m.html


I'm sad to see Young go. So much money flowed into the school under his leadership and many a projects have been completed, are under construction or planned to begin construction as part of his empire expanding ways. He guided us through the process of becoming a PAC 12 University. I hope we can fill his big shoes.

And I'm pretty sure this article is wrong in that the U of U is the 3rd largest higher-education institution after UVU and BYU.

I know that the undergraduates number just under 31,000 at BYU itself for 2011. Not sure what the totals are for graduates, and of course all of the satelite campuses. Totals are probably much higher that the UW.

according to Utah.com UVU has 24,149 undergrad and U of U has 22,661 undergrad, 6,315 graduate.

The article states the "State's Largest", not the largest in the state, meaning largest State owned, that's how I interrupted it. Which according to the above numbers that is correct.

INFO ABOUT UVU

Quote:
As a university, UVU remains committed to serving the needs of a growing student base. With more than 28,000 students, UVU is now the second-largest four-year institution in the Utah System of Higher Education (behind University of Utah), and is providing higher education to more Utahns than any other university.
http://www.uvu.edu/visitors/about/info.html


I still think the language is too ambiguous for good journalism, but you are still right UVU is not bigger than the U of U though your numbers cited here for UVU are out of date. The U of U is still the State's biggest public higher-education institution, but UVU will surpass the U of U this fall semester (according to many news stories that have cropped up this year).
http://www.abc4.com/content/news/sta...q7pu8as6A.cspx

UVU has a little over 28,000 students. The U of U has a little over 30,000.

On my way into work this morning, I saw that steel is rising on the Honors Housing near the Fort Douglas TRAX stop.

The design is pretty amazing. The building is much larger than the design makes it appears to be.

Historic Fort Douglas building to be restored

Quote:
FORT DOUGLAS -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District Thursday awarded a $250,000 contract to Advanced Business Solutions LLC of Kaysville to restore Building 103 at Fort Douglas.

“Building 103 is a historic brick building erected in 1910 and is still in use today as the headquarters for the U.S. Army Reserve Joint and Special Troops Support Command,” said Larry Gittings, project manager for the Sacramento District.

One substantial part of the project involves raising the 101-year-old building to stabilize it and "to make it level again,” Gittings said.

Work is scheduled to begin on the project within 45 days and is expected to be completed by late fall.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers provides planning, engineering, project management, environmental relocation and construction services to military and civilian customers in parts of eight Western states including, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada Oregon, Utah and Wyoming.

Technically, this doesn't belong in the university thread as the building in question is located in the part of Fort Douglas that is NOT part of the university.
