The University of Kentucky Board of Trustees authorized the next phase of construction for student dorms, giving the go-ahead Sunday for a private developer to build and manage five new residence halls on four sites. The cost for a total of 2,317 modern beds would be $133.7 million. Construction is under way for a new $25.2 million dorm next to Haggin Hall near the William T. Young Library. The other five dorms would be built after several housing structures are demolished.
