The state Board of Regents will vote on April 26 meeting at Northern Iowa University on demolishing the following University of Iowa buildings:

• Oakdale Duplexes, 2220 Crosspark Road, Oakdale Campus. The duplexes are typically used to house faculty and international students, but they have been unoccupied for two-thirds of the year as many students want to stay closer to campus, according to the regents.

• 711 Melrose Ave. UI officials are looking to demolish the building in order to proceed with the construction of the Melrose Avenue surface parking lot project.

• 15 Melrose Place. The rental facility, built 1950, is vacant.
