City officials, trustees, donors, administrators, and School of Medicine faculty and students gathered in October for the MED Student Residence groundbreaking. Scheduled to open in June 2012 at 815 Albany St., the residence will provide affordable housing for students who may face up to $170,000 in bills for their medical school education. The $38 million, nine-story complex will feature 104 two-bedroom apartments and retail and common space on the first floor. A fundraising campaign has raised $11 million of its $20 million target, to be used in part to keep the rents in the new building as low as $800 for some units. The University will also borrow money through tax-exempt, fixed-rate bonds. The school enrolls approximately 175 first-year medical students each year.
