​​​​COLLEGE STATION – The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents on Wednesday approved 11 construction projects. In addition to new athletic facilities at Texas A&M University and Texas A&M University-Kingsville, projects include:

  • West Texas A&M University’s new, $48.1 million Agricultural Science Complex, which will have lecture halls, research labs, a multipurpose arena, and a meats lab that is expected to become the pre​mier facility of its kind in the Texas Panhandle and the state;
  • Engineering Education Complex at Texas A&M University, with a budget that was adjusted from $168.9 million to about $225 million; and
  • the $73 million Center for Infrastructure Renewal, a research facility where multidisciplinary teams from TEES, the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, and Texas A&M's College of Engineering will tackle the nation’s infrastructure problems.

Tarleton State University also received approval to begin utility and infrastructure improvements, while Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi was granted approval for an energy consumption reduction project that is expected to generate enough savings for it to ultimately be budget neutral.

Presidents of both the Corpus Christi and San Antonio universities were authorized to negotiate and execute ground lease contracts for privatized student housing. This is expected to add a total of 560 new student beds on about 9.5 acres at Texas A&M University​-Corpus Christi’s Momentum Campus. In San Antonio, it's expected to provide beds for about 350.​​
