ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The dorms at Albany State University cannot keep up with the growing student population. In the last five years, admission has grown by one thousand students.

In response to the growing student body, the school is building two new dorms and a student center. The dorms will add 600 beds. Construction begins in August and the new residence halls will open a year later.

"With Albany State growing at the rate it is, we are having a problem in terms of space and since our school is growing we need to go for anticipated growth, so we have to have the necessary facilities that attract students and also meets our students needs who are here presently," said Student Government Vice President Xavier Jones.

 The student body picked up the tab for some of the construction. $100 of student fees each semester are dedicated for the construction of the student center.
