Science, Technology, Engineering, and Innovation Building
Scheduled for completion in time for the Fall 2021 semester, the new science, technology, engineering, and innovation building on the Brenham Campus will provide expanded laboratory space for Blinn’s science, engineering, and health science programs, and will create space for high-demand programs in new and emerging technologies.
Three stories tall and spanning 72,000 square feet, the new building will feature 17,000 square feet of laboratory space and a 3,000-square-foot innovation center that will include a 3D printing lab, soldering space, robotics area, and a space where students can work with interrelated computing devices. The innovation lab also will include a virtual reality space and a high-tech fabrication shop where students can use laser cutters to make precisely fitted materials.
The new facility also will include anatomy and physiology, biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, geology, information technology, microbiology, nursing, organic chemistry, and physics labs. On the roof, students will have access to a weather station where they can monitor and gauge local weather.
New Student Housing Facility
Scheduled for occupancy in time for the Fall 2022 semester, this new Brenham Campus student housing complex will accommodate approximately 500 students. This project is being funded through a public-private partnership.
The complex would include two buildings that are scheduled to open for the Fall 2022 semester. With the addition of both facilities, Blinn anticipates continued long-term growth on the Brenham Campus.
RELLIS Phase II Building
Scheduled for completion in time for the Fall 2022 semester, the RELLIS Phase II building will be located next to the Walter C. Schwartz Building on the RELLIS Campus.
This three-story, 80,000-square-foot facility will include an engineering lab, computer science classroom, information technology lab, esports arena, student services suite, 19 lecture classrooms, study spaces, faculty and administrative suites, and meeting rooms. The project also includes faculty/staff and visitor parking, sidewalks, pedestrian lighting, a circular entry drive, and a plaza.
