University Goes Modular

The housing shortage in Minot, North Dakota following the Souris River flooding in 2011 and the oil boom in western ND has resulted in students and faculty at Minot State University scrambling for places to live. The university has responded by installing ten modular housing units called ‘Beaver Lodge.” Set up on what had been tennis courts, each unit houses five students who have a private bedroom but share a kitchen and a living room area. As the Minot Daily News tells MHProNews, the university received approval from the State Board of Higher Education to spend an additional $400,000 for the modular units.
