Work is under way to construct a new 500-bed residence hall by August 2014.

The Board of Regents approved the $50 million project at its meeting Dec. 14.

Michael Molina, vice chancellor for Facilities Planning and Construction, said Texas Tech is in the programming phase, which is when his office receives applications for possible construction partners.

Molina said he believes a partner will be chosen by mid-February and once the decision has been made, work will begin on design and infrastructure.

The new residence hall will be located east of Knoxville Avenue in the triangle bound by 19th Street and Texas Tech Parkway, he said.

The hall, Board of Regents Chairman Jerry Turner said, is essential for Tech’s growth.

“With the growth that we’re having, with the emphasis on increasing our graduate students, I think that this residence hall concept is a terrific idea,” Turner said at the meeting. “It’s a terrific opportunity for the university and a great need for the university.”

When completed, Molina said the hall will be approximately 160,000 to 170,000 square feet and will be in a village-style complex. The building will be in the Spanish Renaissance style of Tech.

The village, he said, will be in a modular style with 10 to 12 buildings with approximately 40 to 50 beds in each and will be pedestrian-centric, with no through traffic or parking in the complex.

The buildings composing the village, Molina said, will consist of various heights and designs.

Because the target demographic for the complex is graduate, law, medical and upperclassmen, the hall will feature efficiencies, studio suites and conventional apartments, he said.

However, the residence hall will not be closed to underclassmen, Molina said.

Chancellor Kent Hance said the need for the hall is immediate, although it will not be completed until July 2014 with “heads in beds” by August 2014.

“We’ve got to continue to provide more on-campus housing,” he said at the Board of Regents meeting. “(Students will) see — it’s going to be state of the art. It’s going to have good parking and also, it’s going to be close enough to the bus routes that you’d be able to get anywhere on campus real quick.”

The project will consist of three phases, with the first totaling $50 million and creating the residence hall, Molina said.

Phase 2 would create a 15,000-square foot mixed-use retail/entertainment district while Phase 3 would add 500 beds.

The mixed-use retail/entertainment district would establish a variety of eateries in the complex.

The second and third phases, Molina said, are interchangeable and will depend upon what is needed.

There are 370 parking spaces available in the area of the future complex, which Molina said is adequate for a 500-bed residence hall.

Interim President Lawrence Schovanec said there is a demand on campus for more housing than Tech is able to provide.

One of the motivations for the complex, Schovanec said, arose from data that showed students who live on campus perform better academically and are more likely to graduate.

“It’s a new concept in residential living with greater flexibility,” he said. “I think it will appeal to a broader spectrum of students. We think this will contribute to success in a very broad way.”

Chinello Nwanko, a sophomore media and communication major from Houston, said she was unaware of the new residence hall, but would be interested in living there once it is built.

Nwanko said the hall appeals to her because being 25 years old, she is a non-traditional student.

Because of the hall, Nwanko said she would like to complete her graduate studies at Tech.

“I think it’s a good idea,” she said. “For a graduate student, it would be more easier for them to concentrate and navigate the whole school.”

    Now a larger number of students could join the place thanks to the new residence hall which would most probably be available for them before the beginning of next academic session. For any kind of construction project, you need to appoint the most reputed construction company. For example, if you are planning on building your home in Dallas then you should appoint only the best custom home builder in Dallas TX.

    Turner is absolutely right, the completion of this project would enable them to expand the number of students here. They should now concentrate on completing the first phase of the project immediately. If they find any problem areas then they could rectify that through a remodeling process. These days accessing affordable remodeling service providers has become a hassle free process, for instance, if you need a residential remodeling VA company, you can access it online.

    Since this residence hall is going to be huge, it would be better if they make it spacious enough so that the students do not feel suffocated here.

    It doesn't matter what season it is when you're a student living in a brand new campus because there are many ways in which you can bring winter or summer closer to you.

    Students must feel safe on campus and for that the University must find a way to protect the students and the teachers, as well. Therefore, a good idea is to build a fence and to install a few surveillance cameras all around the campus. The fencing contractors in Dallas will create you a custom iron fence in a short period of time. Also, the cameras must be high tech in order to capture something on the tape.

    Hopefully the residence hall would be finished on time, this is a massive project and it would most definitely solve the accommodation issue. However, if they do not face any storms or rain they will not have to face any problem during construction. Storms not only disrupt our work but also destroy our valuable belongings. To keep my cars protected from storm I have opted for steel garage offered by New Deal Metal Buildings.

    While constructing this place they will have to make sure that the buildings are convenient enough for the students. We have a very spacious dormitory here, it has all the modern facilities. We often change rooms, which is why we have to move computers, desks, study tables frequently. To make the process easier we have installed caster wheels to these items and now we can move them without any hassle. We have bought these caster wheels online from

    Last month I encountered some similar problems when I renovated my house. I changed almost everything from doors and windows to bedroom and kitchen furniture. The only room that wasn't renovated was my son's room. But this week I am going to shop for youth bedroom furniture at and make his room as new.

    Such a massive construction project would no doubt take a long time to finish. This big residence hall is going to be the home of a large number of students, so the authorities need to make sure that the place gets uninterrupted energy supply. Now it is best to opt for alternative energy sources, just install solar panels and get ready to enjoy clean energy. For our company we resorted to the best Las Vegas solar panels system provider.

I am sure the students will appreciate this offbeat design, the authorities should consider installing proper security system to keep the students safe.

    The authorities should build more on-campus housing facilities for the students. I own a construction company and we mostly build houses. Due to the recent economic turmoil I have been taking many cost saving measures now, I buy my metal supplies from online stores like, it helps me save money as well as time.

    For this big renovation I advise you to use the roll off containers. They are great, they are very useful for moving, for storage, for storing everything you need and so on. Just try them!

    This is most definitely going to be a big project for them, however, they also need to install the right features to make it more convenient, they should opt for elevated pedestal system, they will find all the information they need on it at

    This new addition would definitely be a big advantage for the students. After few years it becomes necessary to renovate a building, I recently decided to remodel my kitchen and bathroom, I hired Somerville Aluminum, Inc. and they have done a splendid job for my house.
