Dozens of prefabricated modules are being lifted into position for the future Student Village at SUNY Broome.

The $18 million housing complex on the the town of Dickinson campus has been under construction for several months.

Trucks have been hauling the modules from Simplex, Incorporated, in Scranton. It takes about an hour to transport each unit from the facility where they’re assembled.

SUNY Broome housing director Jeffrey Horowitz expects the final module for the project to be in place by next Friday, if there are no weather-related delays.

Horowitz says applications for the suites are being accepted. He says an open house will be held on April 26 for students interested in living in the new facility. Students may contact the school’s admission office if they wish to attend the open house.

There’s more information about the Student Village at SUNY Broome on the college’s website.

More than 300 students will be able to reside in the complex.

The campus site where the housing project is being constructed is leased by the BCC Housing Development Corporation.

College officials have said they expect the on-campus housing will help in their effort to increase enrollment.

SUNY Broome’s international programs could receive a boost because students may find the campus housing complex to be convenient.

Student village construction is expected to be completed in August, so the facility will be available for the fall semester.
