The apartment complex would house approximately 500 people.

Dartmouth has signed an agreement with a private developer to begin planning an approximately 300-unit graduate and professional student apartment complex on property the College owns on Mt. Support Road in neighboring Lebanon, NH.

Michaels Student Living, a division of the Michaels Organization in Camden, N.J., will submit preliminary documents on the project to the city of Lebanon at the end of the month. The Lebanon Planning Board has scheduled a conceptual design review of the plans at its Jan. 13 meeting. This will be the first time board members have considered the project.

The approximately $50 million development, which is expected to accommodate at least 500 people, could house one or more graduate and professional students in an apartment, or be home to a student and their family. Graduate and professional students would have priority in renting the units, which will likely be offered as furnished residences.

The project timetable has the apartments available for rent in the fall of 2022. They would be housed in four buildings, with a central community building and several small outbuildings also on the site.
