Kent State plans to spend $1B on 10-year makeover of campus

KENT, OHIO — Kent State University trustees have approved a plan to spend more than $1 billion over the next 10 years on a campus makeover.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports the recent vote on the university’s transformation plan will lead to new construction, building renovations, a campus gateway and the creation of bike and walking trails.

Trustees also approved a six per cent tuition increase for freshman enrolling for fall semester that will keep the $10,612 tuition frozen over four years. There are 28,000 students enrolled there.

Included in the $221-million first phase of the makeover will be construction of a new business college administration building and adjacent parking garage, and renovations to Kent State’s fashion school and mixed-use academic and retail space on property the university owns in downtown Kent.
