Residence Halls

The older residence halls on the west side of The University of Texas at Arlington campus are being replaced with two, 500-bed facilities to accommodate the University’s continued growth. Similar to Vandergriff Hall, the double occupancy rooms will include amenities students desire today through living and learning spaces that promote social interaction and community engagement. Z6 Commissioning had to mobilize quickly to test 600+ windows systems in a 5 week time frame to ensure they met the performance requirements outlined in the specifications.
