NORFOLK — Old Dominion University's governing board has approved a plan to double its classroom, research and student support space over the next 20 years.

The master plan unanimously approved Thursday by the Board of Visitors also calls for construction of a new 30,000-seat football stadium to replace 20,000-seat Foreman Field, which would be partially demolished to make room for more student housing.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that the expansion would be accomplished within the university's current 250-acre footprint. Nearly 1.3 million square feet of buildings space, 4,570 student housing units and 3,590 parking spaces would be added to ODU's Norfolk campus. Six buildings and a total of 204,000 square feet of new space would be added to the Virginia Beach campus.
