Crews at the University of Virginia began demolishing Dunnington Hall, a residence building in the Alderman Road area on Thursday.
This is the beginning of the final phase of a project to remove and replace all of the residence halls in that area.
The new housing will be able to accommodate the growing number of students at UVa.
"They have more room to stay and stuff like that," said Lawrence Anderson, an UVa employee. "Some of the old buildings they are tearing down need to be torn down because I think it helps the student body and it helps the university in the future."
The project is set to be completed sometime in the summer of 2015.
