Two New Residence Halls Open in Time for Start of School

August 29, 2013

Move In Day

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas- Students at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi moved into their new campus homes, including two newly-constructed residence halls, during the Islander Move-In on Thursday, Aug. 29.  The new dorms, Anchor Hall and Tarpon Hall, will provide 150 additional beds for incoming students.

Dr. Don Albrecht, Vice President of Student Engagement and Success, greeted incoming students and their families outside of the Camden Miramar Recreation Center.  Throughout the day, the campus community and student athlete volunteers helped assist new students with the move-in.  With the addition of the new residence halls, Camden Miramar will have 1,640 permanent beds on campus.

Students living in the new dorms will have their own individual room, bathroom, desk area, and living space. Students, many who were with their parents, were excited to move into the new residence halls.

“I chose the Island University because I liked the idea of living on a beach,” said Marcella Hobbes, an incoming freshman nursing student from Austin, Texas. “I chose to live in the individual dorms because I like my own space.  It was convenient that the University built these resident halls in time for my incoming freshman year.”
