Lowell

UMass Lowell reopens with changes

Continue reading below

Students returning to the University of Massachusetts Lowell for the 2013-2014 academic year were greeted with several changes on campus, including the addition of two new residence halls, the university’s fifth and sixth new buildings to open this year. Nearly 1,000 students will now live in University Suites on East Campus and Riverview Suites on South Campus. Both new halls feature multibed suites, study areas, and outdoor spaces. University Suites also includes a café, which is open to the public, and Riverview houses a full fitness center. The increase in housing has been prompted by steady growth of the university’s student body, particularly among first-year and transfer students. That group represents 2,750 students this year, up from 2,614 last year
