ROCHESTER, MI (My TV20 News at 10) --- This is where 500 Oakland University students will soon call home.

It will provide relief to many students who live in nearby hotels as they wait for room to open on campus.

The $30 million complex is among the $65 million in projects that will soon get underway on campus.

Students have constantly complained of a lack of parking close to their buildings.

That's changing with a new 1,240-car parking structure.

Other projects include new outdoor recreational and athletic facilities, and an engineering center.

We have not been told when construction will start, but, it's expected to be completed sometime next year.
