The university will hold a topping-off ceremony for a 12-story building designed to house 350 graduate students. It's expected to cost $55 million and should open for students in August 2012.
It's the first new housing being built on the Camden campus since 1989.
The campus is largely a commuter school. But Chancellor Wendell Pritchett has made it a goal to have more students living on or near the campus.
Currently, there's room for about 520 students on campus.
