Legislature Approves Bonding For Three OSU Building Projects
Before they adjourned their legislative session on Saturday, Oregon lawmakers approved funding for three major construction projects at Oregon State University.
On the Corvallis campus, Cordley Hall received $86 million in bonding to continue a years-long renovation project. The-1960’s era building houses several science departments and is the university’s largest teaching and research facility.
In Bend, the OSU-Cascades campus will receive nearly $14 million for its “Student Success Center.” Student fees will add another $5 million to the project, which will include career and academic advising offices, a student health facility, and a veterans support center.
And back on OSU’s main campus, a massive renovation of Reser Stadium will be helped by $40 million in state bonds, which the university says will be repaid by the school’s athletic programs.
All three projects are in bills awaiting approval by Governor Kate Brown.
