A&M-Central Texas breaks ground December 13 on third building, Heritage Hall

Texas A&M University-Central Texas will break ground on its third building, Heritage Hall, on Tuesday, December 13 at 10 a.m. The groundbreaking ceremony will take place on the A&M-Central Texas campus at 1001 Leadership Place, Killeen, Texas, 76549. Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to share in the excitement.

“This important addition to the A&M-Central Texas campus is only possible because of the generous support of our Texas Legislature,” said Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp. “I would like to join the Warrior students, faculty and staff in expressing our thanks and appreciation.”

“Although Heritage Hall will be somewhat smaller than Founder’s Hall and Warrior Hall, it will be no less significant in allowing the university to take another dramatic step forward in the expansion of its capability,” A&M-Central Texas President Marc Nigliazzo said. “Heritage Hall will reflect the enduring commitment of all those who have worked to build this university, and it will underscore its great promise for the future.”

The $36 million, 60,000 sq. ft. building will include the following:

  • New teaching laboratories
  • The first research laboratory
  • A human performance laboratory
  • Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC)
  • University Archival space, to include special storage and reading rooms
  • The College of Arts and Sciences
  • A state-of-the-art computer assisted classroom
  • Space for student organizations
  • A limited number of specialized classrooms
  • Conference and seminar rooms
  • Small coffee shop
  • Additional student gathering spaces

Dress for the event is business causal and ceremonial refreshments will be served after the event.
