TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WBRC) - Female freshman at the University of Alabama are getting a new place to live.

Construction of the new Tutwiler Residence Hall is underway on campus.

The new 365,000 square foot dorm will replace the existing Tutwiler Residence Hall, which is located adjacent to this site.

The new facility will be home to 1,285 first-year female students.

The new facility is designed by TURNERBATSON, in partnership with Mackey Mitchell Architects.

The completed Tutwiler will be made of multiple five-story buildings interconnected by enclosed “bridges” allowing residents to circulate throughout the facility.

A courtyard was designed for recreation and social gatherings.

The rooms will be double-occupancy and single-occupancy resident assistant rooms.

And each room will have a private bathroom including a toilet, shower, and lavatory.
