Texas A&M University at Galveston Atlantic and Pacific Residence Halls
Designed to complement existing structures on campus, the Atlantic and Pacific Residence Halls feature dedicated gathering spots, barbecue areas, and low seating walls to provide additional relaxation space and convey a warm, home-like feel.
The residence hall buildings, which total 169,200 square feet, add 600 beds of capacity to the campus. Each unit houses two separate sleeping areas for four students, a bathroom, and a shared entry. Additional amenities include reception/office and administrative areas, laundry rooms, and study/lounge areas. Units are fully wired and secured with an electronic card key access system with surveillance to enhance student safety.
The addition of a clearly defined pedestrian and bicycle circulation system promotes ease of travel within the campus, and strategically located bike racks encourage alternative transportation. The system links to the existing campus circulation system and includes wayfinding signage and secure illumination throughout.
