Texas A&M University at Texarkana - Multi-Use Library and Physical Plant

When completed in June, the new multi-use library and physical plant will join the previously constructed Science and Technology building on the new Texas A&M University at Texarkana campus. The two new buildings are the second components of a five-phase project that will eventually accommodate up to 10,000 students.

The library is a four-story, 187,612-sq-ft building providing student services, offices and classroom space. The 14,612-sq-ft central plant, designed to be expanded, will be the first component of a campus utility infrastructure loop. By fall, the building will include a student union; bookstore; classrooms; faculty, staff and administrative offices; library; activity rooms and student support services.
