MSOE announces plan for new residence hall in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee School of Engineering is embarking on a major makeover of its oldest residence hall. 

Plans were unveiled Monday to renovate Johnson Hall into a living-learning community. The $37 million project will feature the addition of 48 rooms, workspaces, classrooms, and an updated dining hall. 

It will also have a series of 2-story collaboration hubs which are designed to bring students together. 

"This living and learning dormitory will allow MSOE to further its reputation as one of the country's premier learning centers for engineering, business, and nursing," said Dan Moceri, MSOE Board of Regents Chairman. 

The building will be named after the school's fourth president, Hermann Veits who passed away in 2017. 

Construction is expected to start in May 2020 and with an August 2021 opening.
