​​​​CORPUS CHRISTI - Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is closer to shortening a waiting list for student housing that's in the hundreds.

The off-campus complex Momentum Village, that opened in 2015, was supposed to alleviate the growing demand, but it opened at 100 percent capacity. 

Phase II of Momentum Village will feature townhome- and apartment-style living and can accommodate about 560 beds. 

The complex will include two, four-story "L" shaped apartment buildings and three, three-story stand-alone townhome buildings. 

Shared amenities will include: 

  • 3,800-sf 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;

Preliminary numbers show the university will again break a record for the number of incoming freshman and total enrollment. The university's official 2015 fall student enrollment was 11,693 students.

The expansion is among several construction projects aimed to accommodate growing enrollment at the university. ​
