Frantic activity at Tenth Street dorms

Although construction work has come down to the wire, Selkirk College’s Nelson dormitory will be ready to house students when school reopens on Tuesday.

Although construction work has come down to the wire, students are expected to begin moving into Selkirk College’s revamped Nelson dormitory today.

College communications director Barry Auliffe says the work passed its final inspection this afternoon.

“Every room that’s available has been rented,” he says.

A number of other spaces — Auliffe guessed it was 20 to 30 out of 100 — still need to be completed and remain up for grabs. Nevertheless, Auliffe anticipates a full house.

“Those will be filled as soon as possible,” he says. “Some students get to town and still don’t have places.”

Although the residences are nearly completed, the performance space — the former Studio 80 — won’t reopen until October. Auliffe says students will be able to make do for the first month.

“The time they really need a space like that is in the winter semester when they do their showcases and presentations. They’re doing a lot of classroom and small studio work [at first].”
