Students from this college who apply to live in Tobin Lofts upon completion in fall 2013 will have the same priority as other local college students, general manager Renee Cavazos said Wednesday.

Tobin Lofts, a four-story complex being built through a public-private partnership at North Main Avenue and East Laurel Street, will include a 225-unit residential space, a 961-space parking garage and 12,000 square feet of commercial space, with Luther’s Café as anchor tenant.

The project includes construction on the north and south sides of West Evergreen.

The lofts are scheduled for completion in August.

Students from other colleges and universities, such as the University of Texas at San Antonio, University of the Incarnate Word and Trinity University can rent apartments in Tobin Lofts.

“If a person from Incarnate Word comes and leases before a SAC person, then it’s going to come to the person who came first,” Cavazos said. “SAC has no upper hand in leasing.”

She said about 70 applications have been submitted for Tobin Lofts since the leasing office began accepting applications Nov.1.

The lofts will provide 552 beds for students in furnished apartments with all bills paid. There will also be 65 beds available for families and employees in a building connected to a parking garage that will be constructed in Lot 26 at Evergreen Street and Main.
Prices range from $875-1,050 for a one bedroom, one bath apartment; $675-775 per person for two bedrooms, two baths; $525 per person for four bedrooms, two baths; and $575 per person for four bedrooms, four baths. Some units in the student area have up to four beds, so if students do not have roommates, the leasing office will match roommates based on a questionnaire.

Applications are available in the leasing office 10 a.m.-6 p.m. in Room D402 of Building 19 of the continuing education annex, 309 W. Dewey Place, or online at

A model of a full-size bed, sofa, dresser, desk and office chair is expected to be available in the leasing office.
