DSU Taking Over Dover Conference Center

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware State University plans to take over a Dover hotel and conference center as part of an aggressive expansion program and effort to boost enrollment.
    
The DSU board approved a $12 million, 15-year lease of the Sheraton Hotel, about a quarter mile north of the main campus on Thursday.
    
Board of Trustees Chairman Claibourne Smith says the move gives the school room to continue expanding. In May, trustees approved spending $2 million to expand operations in New Castle County.
    
The hotel has 153 rooms and the conference center has 15 meeting and banquet rooms. Hundreds of students will live in the hotel next fall and in two years the school has the option to buy it. The new location may be home to a new charter high school.
