High Ground Housing

Expanding Hatfield's Campus

$16.5 million in funding was approved for a 34,000-square-foot housing project to accommodate primarily upper division and graduate students and visiting professionals and staff studying or working at Hatfield. This complex was conceived as a response to the housing shortage in the Newport area, and it will ease a portion of the local housing demand.

The complex will include 72 studio-style apartments and five two-bedroom family units. The new housing will be a quick walk from the Hatfield campus and located outside of the tsunami zone.
