ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — The University of Michigan is moving forward with plans for a $185 million residence hall for graduate students and other campus construction projects.

The Ann Arbor News reports (http://bit.ly/1gGYrg2 ) the Board of Regents on Thursday approved the hall's design. Charles Munger, vice chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, in April donated $100 million toward building the dorm and $10 million for fellowships for students who live there.

Also Thursday, the regents approved plans to spend $11.4 million converting a school building that once housed a nuclear reactor into research labs and testing areas. The school has been decommissioning the Ford Nuclear Reactor over the past decade.

The regents also approved plans to give the School of Education building a $13.6 million renovation, with construction set to begin in January.
