The Texas A&M University Galveston Campus Academic Complex

Inspiring Exploration of Our Maritime and Marine Worlds

A New Academic Complex for Galveston

Enrollment of students pursuing marine and maritime studies at Texas A&M University Galveston Campus has been steadily increasing for years. To best serve our students, we need your help to create an environment worthy of an Aggie education. The new complex will serve all degrees offered on the Galveston campus. It will be home to innovative chemistry,  physics and geographic information systems labs and modern classrooms designed around small collaborative learning groups.

"Like the flagship campus in College Station, Texas A&M’s branch campus in Galveston is experiencing tremendous growth and development. This new building will further solidify Texas A&M at Galveston’s reputation as one of the premiere marine-oriented campuses in the nation."

— Texas A&M University President Michael K. Young

In addition to supporting students’ needs, the building’s architects incorporated elements of wellness in their design concepts, such as natural light, broad corridors, quiet rest areas and beautiful gathering spaces to welcome visitors.

With the combination of hands-on instruction and the innovation of this complex, they will have opportunities that few gain from an undergraduate program.

Bringing Adventure and Discovery into the Classroom

Texas A&M University Galveston Campus requires all students to take courses in science, but because of the large volume of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) degrees we issue, many of our students require fundamental physical science labs as part of their degree programs.

  • This state-of-the-art facility will prepare our students to tackle complex issues such as food security and conservation of natural environments.
  • The complex will also house an outdoor experiential learning facility which will be fully equipped for experiments ranging from air quality studies to plant bioassays.
  • Initial student projects will include measuring the effects of plant exposure to pollutants as well as isolating compounds and testing their impact on plant life.

"This state-of-the-art facility will add new dimensions to our campus. The architects understood our needs perfectly and created a hybrid space that will support a suite of different learning uses throughout the hours of the day, from formal lecture delivery, to modern collaborative learning sessions and 21st century laboratory instruction, to open study environments."

— Dr. Patrick Louchouarn, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and Chief Academic Officer (TAMUG) and Associate Provost (TAMU)

Making the Dream a Reality

Join us in our efforts to give our students the tools they need to excel in our Academic Complex.

Through donor support, this Academic Complex will equip our students and faculty with the best technology, laboratories and classroom space—all required to learn and conduct leading edge research in this vibrant maritime and marine environment. Your gift will have a lasting impact as our future graduates go on to support the everevolving needs of our region, our state, our nation and the world.

Through various naming opportunities identified and included in this brochure, former students, corporations, families, classes and friends can include their names or memorialize a loved one as a permanent part of the Academic Complex by funding a lobby, laboratory, classroom space, student gathering area, office suite or rooftop terrace.
