WASHINGTON (AP) The University of the District of Columbia could soon expand to a shuttered school building.

In last week's budget proposal, D.C. Council Chairman Vincent Gray included a transfer of the Patricia R. Harris Education Center from the city's real estate coffers to UDC. The 358,000-square-foot facility would be used as a campus for the university's new community college.

University officials say they are thrilled about the new property and will fill it with the right resources. They say early estimates show renovations could cost $21 million.

The move needs final council approval next month.
