Riverdale’s College of Mount Saint Vincent is planning to add a new six-story, 91-unit building to its campus.

The school filed plans with the Department of Buildings on Monday for a building at 6301 Riverdale Avenue that will span roughly 60,000 square feet. It will contain space for dorm rooms and a nursing school.

The dorms will take up about 40,000 square feet of space, while the nursing school will take up about 20,000 square feet, according to Kevin DeGroat, vice president of operations at Mount Saint Vincent. Officials plan to break ground in late September and finish the building in January of 2020.

“It’s an exciting project for the college as the college continues to grow and expand,” DeGroat said.

The Real Deal recently ranked the largest colleges and universities in New York City by total square footage. Columbia topped the list with 14.88 million square feet of space across 232 properties, while New York University was a close second with 12.78 million square feet of space across 110 properties. The Bronx’s Fordham University came in third with 3.25 million square feet across 21 properties.
