In December, the University broke ground on the new LAKE CAMPUS DEVELOPMENT, the first major campus expansion in West Windsor, south of Lake Carnegie. Plans for the site include 379 housing units near Washington Road for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, slated to open in 2023, as well as a parking garage with more than 600 spaces and a geo-exchange facility to heat and cool buildings. The development also will add new homes for the varsity tennis, squash, and softball teams, reroute the cross-country course, and reconfigure playing fields for rugby and recreational sports.
