Back in 2016 the word was the football team was going to be moving into a new 750 room dormitory in 2017. Have they even broken ground yet? If so, where is it located? If not, what is the holdup?

When the team shows up on the field, the dorm will appear. Tit for tat.

The "hold-up" is that everything between Iowa and Naismith is being built.

The apartments that are expected to house the football team are expected to be done in summer 2018.

World class salary for the staff first. Then we begin thinking about the players. It's priority driven.

A dorm that size would need to be breaking ground very soon to be completed by summer of 2018. Where is the land located and have bids been let yet?

I've always assumed the Football club's underclassmen will be housed in the dorm being built by Oliver Hall:

Central Campus

I've always assumed the upperclassmen will be off campus and in places like Here Kansas. I assumed that was one of the primary reasons that place was built.

I don't know for certain which the football team will be in, but it appears that the foundations and potentially more for the buildings are there already. The whole area is blocked off from the view of the road. (I saw the construction on my way to the KU WSU baseball game Tuesday.)

It's on the northside of 19th between Iowa and Naismith. South and southwest of Oliver Hall.

I've heard they'll be in the new dorm and the apartments in the same area. I don't know for sure. Maybe they are the same thing. Apartment style dorms? Don't know.
