CORPUS CHRISTI - Enrollment is on the rise while space is limited on the main campus of Texas A&M Corpus Christi. University officials say Momentum Campus — which is adjacent to Main Campus — has plenty of land to expand and provides a solution.

The plan is to make Momentum Campus recreation-based to free up space on the main campus for academic related expansion. A soccer and track facility has already been completed at Momentum Campus.

The university also plans to move their baseball and softball diamonds to Momentum Campus.

The master plan for Momentum Campus includes a hotel, a mixed-use district with graduate student housing as well as research, office and retail space.

The university is also adding an additional ballroom to the University Center on Main Campus as well as expanding the food preparation and serving areas in the building. The construction of the first dining hall at the university, which will cost about $8 million, is also underway.
