New Blinn College Residence Hall hopes to decrease the size of the campus housing wait list

In 2016, more than 400 students were placed on the wait list due to lack of available on-campus housing.

Scheduled for completion for student move-in by fall 2018, a new four-story residence hall at Blinn College has recently broken ground in Brenham, Texas. In 2016, over 400 Blinn College students were put on the campus housing wait list. The new residence hall will help alleviate the stress on the school’s campus housing system.

The facility, located at the corner of Seager Street and Old Mill Road, will offer 464 suite-style beds and 9,000-sf of common space. Study spaces, an outdoor courtyard, and a large engineering classroom will all be included.

Each of the suite-style units will have their own bathroom. Two bedroom suites will have one bathroom while four-bedroom suites will be equipped with two bathrooms.

The project began construction on June 1, 2017 and is valued at $34 million. Kirksey Architecture designed the project and Moss & Associates is the general contractor. Servitas is the project’s developer.
