“life on an island”
Momentum Campus Master Plan Update
The TAMU Corpus Christi campus sits on an island in Corpus Christi Bay. The island cannot be expanded so as pressure grew for more academic capacity in the core, something needed to move off. The decision was made to create a new athletics, recreation, and living-learning community on a new campus. The new campus needed to feel part of the university, be well connected back to the core with transportation alternatives, and accommodate public events which were a challenge in the core campus. The new campus creates a strong sense of community, openness, and identity as an extension of TAMU-CC expanding the campus beyond the island.
