Ground breaking

On July 6, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi broke ground on phase two of Momentum Village housing, located on the Momentum Campus off Ennis Joslin Road.

The new housing, featuring townhome and apartment-style living, will offer 560 additional beds, bringing the total number of residents in the entire Momentum Village complex to 1,042 students. The project also includes a 3,800 square-foot community center with a community kitchen, study rooms/areas, a game room and student lounge area, a sand volleyball court, shaded cabanas, outdoor patios and seating, a mailroom and more.

Island University Breaks Ground on Tidal Hall, New Life Sciences Research and Engineering Building

Life Science Building

Golden shovels sparkled in the sun as Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi broke ground on phase one of “Tidal Hall,” the University’s new life sciences research and engineering building. Dozens of elected officials, community and campus leaders attended the Sept. 6 groundbreaking ceremony.

The new three-story building, located near the first entrance to the main campus, will support cutting-edge research and scholarly activity, and will include six new instructional labs, 34 research labs, as well as much needed faculty office space.

Approval for the new building came from the Texas A&M University System Board of Regents in September 2015, and with it, the Island University was appropriated $60,000,000 for construction of the building. The new addition is expected to solidify the University position as an Emerging Research University. Completion of the project is anticipated for July 2018.
