That’s only one of the three projects UOG has planned out in the coming years.
Guam – The University of Guam is planning on upgrading three of their facilities with a ground breaking for the new Student Services Center planned before the end of the year.
UOG President Dr. Robert Underwood says this is part of their $300-million dollar physical master plan which they hope to complete by the year 2025. Their first priority is to upgrade the Student Services Center, which will be a three-story facility housing the cafeteria, bookstore, and health center. Then next on the list is the School of Engineering Annex. Underwood says they’re in the final stages of getting their loan approved before they put out a Request for Proposal for the projects. Next, UOG is planning on building a new dorm which will add 300 beds to attract more international students. Underwood says they put out a Request for Information for the new dorm and received 15 inquiries.
Underwood explains, “Big changes happening and those are the three main items that we’re anticipating in facilities, the new dorm, Engineering Annex which will be built by CNAS, and the revamping of the student services center into a three-level huge structure which will be the life force of Mangilao.”
Underwood says the $300-million dollar physical plan will be funded mostly through endowment fund-raising.
