CAPE GIRARDEAU — Southeast Missouri State is considering building new academic space and a residence hall at its River Campus in Cape Girardeau.

The university's Board of Regents last week authorized the administration to contract for design and development services. The university stressed in a news release that the project is only in the conceptual design stage.

The proposal would combine new academic space and housing in a four-story building near the Seminary Building on the River Campus' northeast corner.

The first floor would include about 25,000 square feet of academic space, along with room for residence hall dining, retail sales and special events. The upper three stories would house 150 to 180 students.

If it's approved, the university expects to issue bonds to finance the project.
