COMMERCE, TX - EdR, one of the nation's largest developers, owners and managers of high quality collegiate housing communities, announced the opening of a new third-party residence hall development on the campus of Texas A&M University-Commerce in Commerce, Texas.
In 2017, EdR will add nearly $300 million in assets to its owned portfolio and deliver nearly $100 million in third-party developments.
"We are very excited to add this new residence hall for our students and it will be a wonderful addition, ensuring that we continue to put our students first by increasing the available on-campus living options," said Alicia Currin, Texas A&M-Commerce's vice president of business and administration.
The approximately 137,000 square-foot, 490-bed community is a freshman-only residence hall designed to foster a sense of community for first-year college students. It provides private study rooms, several communal areas, laundry facilities (with smartphone app monitoring capabilities), robust internet and Wi-Fi throughout the building.
"The latest phase of on-campus housing at Texas A&M University-Commerce will certainly help solidify the university's already stellar reputation in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex," said EdR president Tom Trubiana. "With the latest features in high-quality student housing, as well as double and single-bedroom units and centralized private bathrooms, the newest phase of housing will definitely enhance the collegiate experience for current and future Texas A&M-Commerce students."
