HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Southern Miss administrators, faculty and supporters gathered Thursday morning to officially dedicate the new Century Park South residential complex.

It includes the Luckyday Citizenship Hall, along with Scott and Vann halls.

It's a gated community with 954 beds and is the largest construction project in the university's history.

"It's just been an exciting process from start to finish and so we're thrilled to get to this day, to be able to cut the ribbon and do the official dedication," said Dr. Rodney Bennett, USM president. 

The complex also includes the new Moffitt Health Center, which replaces a former student health clinic which was built in 1962. 

"(The Moffitt Center) is right here in the heart of student living," said Dr. Virginia Crawford, director of Student Health Services at USM. "We went from nine exam rooms to 15," she said.  

The cost of the entire complex was about $55 million.
