Cather Hall will hold its last group of residents during the summer session of 2014. Pound Hall’s final semester will be spring semester 2014.

Although the buildings don’t have a set date to be demolished, it’s certain they will no longer be used as residence halls after this year.

The plan has always been that once the two new suite buildings opened, there would be sufficient amount of housing available to demolish Cather and Pound, said Sue Gildersleeve, University of Nebraska-Lincoln director of housing.

UNL has two suite-style complexes: Knoll Residential Center and University Suites. University Suites will be one of the replacements for Cather and Pound. The other suite-style dorm should open next year, according to an August Daily Nebraskan article.

Suite-style units differ from traditional residence halls in that they have four-person rooms instead of two. The suite-style units include a large fridge, breakfast prep area, microwave, cabinet space, living room and a bathroom for four people to share as opposed to the entire floor having to share one bathroom. Suite-style residence halls are also more expensive than a traditional two-person room.

In 2010, a study began to determine what it would take to renovate Cather and Pound halls – both the costs and the procedure.

“The cost came about being so high that it didn’t make sense to renovate them,” Gildersleeve said.

Current residents had mixed emotions about Cather being closed for good.

“Compared to Abel and Sandoz, it’s lacking study rooms,” said An Doan, a freshman biochemistry major. “But I like living here. It’s not as bad as I thought it’d be.”

Doan added that she plans on moving to an apartment next year, so not being able to live in Cather doesn’t really affect her.

Other students felt more strongly about the issue.

“I like living here,” said Chelsea Gould, a freshman business administration major. “It’s small, so it’s more of a community, and it’s not far from anything. If they didn’t tear it down, I’d continue to live here in the future.”

Freshman forensic science major Madalyn Buettner also said she felt a strong sense of community living there and knew numerous people who would like to continue living there next school year.

“I think it’d be better if they remodeled it, but it’s nice – the location and everything,” she said. “I know a lot of people like having the apartment style, but it (the traditional rooms) kind of gives you more of the college feel.”

Other factors the university has to consider besides the cost include the fate of Cather-Pound-Neihardt dining center and the procedure of demolishing the buildings.

“We don’t have a date set yet because we’d like to know what were doing with the dining center – if we’re going to continue to use it for a few years,” Gildersleeve said. “The size of the dining hall isn’t big enough to be renovated into what the others are.”

The demolition will be treated as a construction project and will need to be bid out. It’s also important that it happens during a time when the least amount of students are on campus, possibly after spring graduation, Gildersleeve said.
