FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Indiana Tech is planning on building a new residence hall at its downtown campus.

The university submitted plans to the Fort Wayne plan commission this week for the mixed-use dorm at Washington Boulevard and Schick Street.

Plans include retail space on the first floor and 50 2-bed suits in the upper levels.

Indiana Tech Vice President, Marketing & Communication Brian Englehart said more and more students are looking to live on campus.

"We're just over 100% right now so we're looking at maybe some alternative housing for a few of them. And that's been more and more the case for us in recent years," he said.

If approved, construction is expected to begin later this year.

The residence hall would then open next year.
