Texas Lutheran University breaks ground on New Freshman Residence Hall

Texas Lutheran University has commenced construction work on its New Freshman Residence Hall in Seguin, in the US state of Texas.

The three-storey, 48,000 square feet Residence Hall includes two floors. The first floor features public space with classrooms, meeting rooms and open gathering spaces. The second and third floors of the new freshman coed residence hall will include 160 beds in double rooms.

Barnes Gromatzky Kosarek Architects of Austin has been appointed for the design of the building and Whiting-Turner will serve as the general contractor. Project Control of San Antonio will be the project manager for the building. The new building is expected to be completed by the beginning of the academic year 2012-2013.

Established in 1891, Texas Lutheran is an undergraduate university of the liberal arts, sciences and professional studies located in Seguin. A diverse student body of approximately 1,400 with classes averaging fewer than 20 students provides a sense of community and an environment where individuality and personal growth are as integral to success as rigorous academics.
