Jarrett Hall Renovation – West Texas A&M University

Phase II is a renovation to Jarrett Hall on the West Texas A&M University campus in Canyon, Texas. This existing 380-bed, student residence hall is located on the north side of the campus adjacent to Russell Long Boulevard. The building was constructed in 1963 and contains 69,630 gross square feet of space over two floors.

Jarrett Hall consists of two wings and a central common building. In each of the residential wings, traditional style double units are grouped into 12 communities of 28 to 36 students. Each community includes common private bathrooms, a community lounge, and a small common study area. The renovation will add an additional 28 beds for a total of 408 beds when completed.

Located central to the residential wings, the building commons is a hub of social activity serving the Jarrett Hall residential community. This area includes a living room to watch TV shows, play video games, along with foosball, ping-pong and pool table. A new community kitchen is proposed as a gathering place for groups of students to prepare and share a meal or snack together. It also serves as additional area for individual or group study. An expanded central laundry, public rest rooms and a two-bed, two-bath director’s apartment are located in the building commons as well.

A new collaborative learning center and RA workroom are located adjacent to the building commons in the first floor of the west residential wing. The learning center is envisioned to serve residents of Jarrett Hall as well as other residents on the WTAMU campus.
