Sam Houston Village
Sam Houston Village is a university-owned housing complex northwest of the main campus.
In 2003, the university bought the land bounded by Sam Houston Avenue, 16th and 17th Street, and Avenue M (partially containing Zach's Bar and Grill and the 17th Street Bar), for the planned development of a new housing complex.
Opening a year later, the $19.3 Million complex houses over 500 freshmen and features fully furnished suites, including two bedrooms, a shared bathroom, and living area. SHV is also the first campus housing to feature an underground parking garage.
Only half the dorm was opened for residency in Fall 2011 as it underwent internal HVAC renovations. The entire building will be closed during the Spring 2012 semester to finish remodeling in time for the Fall 2012 semester.
