Tours of the building followed the ceremony.

San Saba Hall houses 618 students in a suite-style layout that includes single bedrooms with a shared bath. The facility features an open lobby, administrative offices, meeting spaces and live-in professional staff.

Residents have access to a conference room, computer lab, floor study lounges, laundry facilities and a community kitchen.

The new facility is a true living and learning community with an academic focus that houses communities related to the Honors College, Top Scholars, Terry Scholars, Facilitated Acceptance to Medical Education (F.A.M.E.), Engineering and a Leadership and Service lifestyle.

With the opening of San Saba Hall, 4,300 students live on campus including the privately operated housing partners.
