CORPUS CHRISTI - A new student housing project is planned for Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s Momentum Campus to accommodate the school’s rapidly growing student population.
Planned for seven acres on Ennis Joslin Rd., the development could house 350 to 500 students and cost about $35 to $40 million to construct.
Student housing is in high demand at A&M-Corpus Christi, where enrollment has grown nearly 22 percent in the past five years to 10,913 students.
The housing project is the first such project for the Momentum Campus off Nile Dr. and Ennis Joslin Rd. It’s slated for completion in July 2015. American Campus Communities will develop and construct the housing. Once construction is complete, A&M will manage the student housing.
The Momentum Campus opened in 2011 on city-owned land and houses the university’s tennis center and the Dr. Jack Dugan Family Soccer & Track Stadium.
