How bout...you build a 15/20 story dorm in downtown New Bedford! Everyone wins...its one town away, they already have campuses there. They want development! And the builder get his 504 room dorm. Some kids will live there for the downtown campus.....the rest can get a shuttle ride to the Dartmouth campus. Or take the bus a minute away.

I AGREE JOE! STOP TURNING DARTMOUTH. INTO AN URBAN WASTELAND. BUILD CITY STUFF IN THE CITY!!! DARTMOUTH IS A TOWN WITH ALMOST 40,000 RESIDENTS. BUILD THAT STUFF IN THE CITY, NEW BEDFORD COULD USE IT, AND WANTS IT. YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE A LOT OF LAND BUT BUILDING UP SAVES ROOM AN GIVES BEAUTIFUL VIEWS OF THE HARBOR. DARTMOUTH DON'T WANT IT SO GO SOMEWHERE THAT DOES!!!

I agree too. They should also move UMass Dartmouth to New Bedford.
