The West Village offers 455 beds and a retail and food service facility.
Texas Tech University celebrated today (Aug. 7) the completion of the West Village student housing complex with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Located east of Knoxville Avenue in the triangle bounded by 19th Street and Texas Tech Parkway, the 234,501-square-foot complex offers a choice of 61 one-bedroom units, 47 two-bedroom units and 75 four-bedroom units ideally structured for upperclassmen and graduate students.
“This beautiful facility represents the growth of our great university and the increased demand students have for a Texas Tech education,” said Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis said. “Our growth is a testament to the passion our faculty have for teaching our students, the invaluable support our staff provides and the dedication our students have to their academic endeavors.”
The complex officially will open its doors for residents Aug. 16, with all 455 beds occupied for the fall semester. There are nine community lounges, two conference rooms, as well as designated study rooms and office space. Building B features a washer and dryer in each unit, and all units in the complex include full kitchens.
The two-building community features a pedestrian walkway that connects the two areas, which are positioned around courtyards and outdoor green zones. The community also features Raider Exchange, a 3,126-square-foot retail and food service facility.
