The university plans to begin building a new guest house in the quad behind the Former President’s Home this October, according to BYU officials.
The 5,000-square-foot guest house will be constructed in the open space behind the Former President’s Home on the south end of campus, located at approximately 1000 N. West Campus Dr according to the Aug. 21 Provo Planning Commission meeting.
Project plans state the house will provide five bedrooms for on-campus guest housing.
Further, the house will be nearly identical to the Former Presidents’ Home, which is the headquarters of the university’s graduate studies program. The project will not impact the current use of the Former President’s Home, said university spokeswoman Carri Jenkins.
Aaron Ardmore, staff coordinator in charge of the project in the Provo Planning Commission, said the final approval of the plans will take place after all the technical requirements, including a storm water requirement, are met.
