The Texas A&M Maritime Academy Hall

Texas A&M University at Galveston and the Texas A&M Foundation invite you to partner with us to support construction of the 612-bed Maritime Academy Residence Hall. The new hall will include two residential wings that connect to a central commons area. The commons area will be comprised of a mix of classrooms, study lounges, flexible social spaces, staff and midshipmen offices, a reception area, common laundry area, a convenience store and storage spaces.

The new midshipmen residence hall is part of the university’s efforts to provide a positive living-learning opportunity for students. Hunt Companies is designing, developing and constructing the $45 million project in conjunction with Florida-based Moss & Associates. Completion is targeted for fall 2015.

“Today, our nation seeks additional maritime officers to fill the critical shortage that affects our national security. This new midshipmen residence hall will make the growth of our maritime academy possible and therefore provide the officers needed as America’s merchant fleet expands to meet national interests.”
