    ST. GEORGE, Utah - + Video – For the first time in nearly 50 years, Dixie State University broke ground on a new student housing complex on campus.

    The groundbreaking ceremony for the university’s “Campus View Suites” kicked off construction of what will be home to 350 students next fall.

    The new housing will be located west of Nisson Towers, which were constructed in 1968, and were the last student-housing facility to be added to the campus.

    “Saying we’re excited is an extreme understatement,” Dr. Richard B. Williams, president of Dixie State University, told the standing-room only crowd at the groundbreaking ceremony. “Squealing and shrieking doesn't even begin to describe students’ reaction to this project when I talk to them about it.”

    The project by Layton Construction and Method Studio Architects will have four phases, with an estimated cost of around $22 million.

    The campus housing is just the beginning of what’s to come at Dixie State University.
