Schreiner Breaks Ground on $4.8M Residential Complex

New apartment drawing

In February, Schreiner University broke ground on a new $4.8 million apartment-style residential complex that will provide for continued enrollment growth.
Last fall, Schreiner experienced record growth with a 13 percent increase in overall enrollment and a 51 percent increase in freshman enrollment. That growth triggered the launch of a planned additional student housing complex that will serve as a transition from freshman residence living to apartment-style living. The building’s design features metal roofs and bricks that will architecturally blend with the existing structures on campus.

Configured in a diamond shape with three furnished apartment buildings and a community center, the complex will be built on the northwest side of campus, near Hanszen Fine Arts building. Each of the 1,200-square-foot apartment units will include four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room and kitchen.

The residence hall will feature a gazebo and barbecue area along with a community center that will include several storage areas, meeting and social rooms and a covered patio.

The entire campus community will use the community center.

Collegiate Development Services in Irving will build the complex, designed by Dallas-based WSI Architects Inc. The building will add an additional 108 student beds to our capacity and will be ready for use this fall.
