A rendering of the academic complex at TAMU-Galvestion​​​GALVESTON – Texas A&M Galveston has opened two campus buildings: the 86,000-sf first phase of an academic complex includes:

  • a visitors center, classrooms, laboratories, academic services areas;
  • administrative offices; and
  • the $6 million waterfront events pavilion.
Both buildings were completed earlier this year, and opened in August, in time for the start of the fall semester. ​

Texas A&M got approval for a $60 million construction bond from the Texas Legislature in 2013, which had fueled much of the campus' expansion in recent years.

Phase 2 of the Academic Complex, which will include a large lecture hall, new campus bookstore and administrative offices, is under construction.

Officials want to eventually enroll 3,000 students on the campus.
