    There was a plan to do just that some time ago but it was never a high priority.

    The fact they haven't built anything on the proposed expansion area tells me it will eventually happen.

    Funds were recently approved to demolish Adams Center, one of the three dorm towers just south of Lindsey Street.

    The plans show that in place of the 12-story Adams, there will be two five-story brick buildings similar to the recently built residential colleges to the east.

    In addition to new dorm rooms, each will have lounge and study areas as well as a large storm shelter. The north building will have a coffee shop; the south a convenience store.

    All the dorm towers were built in the 1960s and President Joseph Harroz has said the university has adopted a “freshman housing master plan” which would systematically replace all. Once Adams is replaced Walker and Couch towers would also give way to similar new structures.

    The university recently acquired the 1,200-bed Cross Center (Admas has 908) which will allow it to maintain a sufficient housing supply while they continue the demolish/rebuild process.

    The architects are ADG/Blatt of Oklahoma City.


























    Always love the look of the Oklahoma standard red brick and white trim.

    I wonder if the amount of beds in Adams will be replaced by these dorms. It doesn't seem like it since Adams had like 1,200 living in it.

    I remember spending time in my friends super suite above cains. It always smelled like chicken. Hopefully DLB Hall will be around for a while....

    All the current beds will be replaced by new ones.

    It's so long overdue. I was told that the university didn't put anyone in Adams this year to prepare for this. Not sure if that's true or not. If it is, then they have plenty of capacity to complete all of the projects and then determine if they even need to replace #3.

    Bed bugs, bad HVAC, mold, etc. The places are disgusting. Hopefully when they renovated the even older ones like Cate, that they fixed of this stuff too because they were even worse.

    Yes, Adams is currently empty and will soon be demolished.

    The university bought the new Cross Center which more than off-sets the number of beds at Adams.
