To support the growing number of students studying on the Boulder campus, the University of Colorado wants to build a $60 million dorm in the Williams Village complex that could accommodate 560 to 575 freshmen.

The campus, which has not presented the plan to CU's Board of Regents, put out a request for bids to construct the Williams Village East Residence Hall last week. The regents must approve all capital projects with budgets greater than $2 million.

As proposed, the dorm would be modeled after the six-story Williams Village North Residence Hall - and not the original Stearns and Darley towers, which are 13 to 15 stories tall - at the housing complex at 30th Street and Baseline Road.

The 147,162-square-foot dorm would be built just east of Williams Village North on a site currently occupied by four tennis courts and a parking lot.

The dorm would consist mostly of single- and double-occupancy rooms and a few private or semi-private suites.
