New UW Bison Run Village Apartments Under Construction
October 14, 2011 — Construction is under way on a new on-campus housing complex at the University of Wyoming. Completion date is fall 2012.
Located east of War Memorial Stadium, across the street from the parking lots and recreation fields on Willett Drive, the townhome-style Bison Run Village complex will consist of 84 apartments throughout 15 residential buildings.
"We are excited to add Bison Run Village to our mix of residential units," says Patrick Call, UW Residence Life and Dining Services executive director. "We want to offer students a variety of on-campus living options, and these new apartments will meet a need for continuing students, and also for incoming transfer and graduate students."
The Bison Run Village Apartments will feature shared kitchen, dining and living room spaces with single, private bedrooms. Bathrooms will either be private, or shared with another roommate. The apartments will be fully furnished and will include full-size beds, desk and dresser in each bedroom.
Rent will include Internet, basic cable, phone service, basic utilities and a utility allowance for gas and electricity. A separate community center will feature a computer laboratory, mail room, central apartments office and an open lounge for programs, games and studying.
"We're still solidifying some details, but we are looking at full calendar year leases, with rent in the $400 per bedroom range," Call says. "Students will be able to choose their own roommates or have us match them with others, similar to what we do in the residence halls."
UW Residence Life and Dining Services will begin accepting reservations for the new apartments in spring 2012 semester for move-in at the beginning of the fall semester.
