Just in time for the fall 2015 semester, Tyler Junior College officials held a ribbon-cutting and grand opening for Crossroads Hall, a new, 248-bed residential facility on the west side of the main campus.crossroads_hall

The $20-million, 63,000-square-foot residence hall brings TJC’s on-campus population to about 1,300 students. TJC’s total enrollment is approximately 11,000.

Located on Magnolia Avenue between Fifth and Lake streets, the four-story facility will house both freshmen and returning students. The first two floors are reserved for females, and the upper two floors are coed. All rooms are suite style, with two rooms sharing
a bathroom.

Responding to feedback from student focus and advisory groups, Crossroads offers wireless Internet throughout the building, plenty of storage space, meeting and gathering areas for social interaction, a Chick-Fil-A Express restaurant, outlets to recharge technology and even a mobile app that students can download to determine when washing machines are available in the laundry room.

Construction on Crossroads Hall began in April 2014, under the guidance of SmithGroup JJR architects and HGR Turner construction.
