Seven Story Complex In TSU’s Future

In continued efforts to improve Texas Southern University’s campus amenities, TSU’s Board of Regents recently approved and released plans for a $41.5 million, 215,000 square foot New Student Resident Housing Complex.

Houston based architectural firm Harrison Kornberg in collaboration with Lord, Aeck, Sargent were awarded the contract to design the seven-story building that will include social and study areas on all residential floors. Other amenities include: a dining hall, locker storage, a laundry on all residential floors, a convenience store, roof terrace and a gaming area. The rooms are double occupancy with a shared restroom.

Dr. John M. Rudley, TSU’s president, stated, “For the last two years the university has been working on a pilot project where freshman students are living on campus in a 24-hour, seven days a week environment, which includes participation in community, cultural and educational events. We’re seeing the difference this concept makes in our retention rates and student successes in class. On campus housing can result in an increase in our graduation rates and keep students focused on graduating on time. An additional 800 beds, will allow us to house nearly all of our incoming freshman students on campus.”

Currently the university has 6 student housing complexes; Urban Academic Village, Lanier East, Lanier West, University Courtyard, Tierwester I and Tierwester II. There are 1300 students living in campus housing.

TSU’s Board of Regents approved the new student housing at their regular meeting held Oct. 25th, 2012. The university utilized a new federal financing initiative for the project and received a 2.25% interest rate.
