Today, members of the community will have an opportunity to tour Tobin Lofts, part of which is the first student housing on this campus.
An opening ceremony will be at 10:30 a.m. at the pool in the interior of Tobin Lofts property at 1415 N. Main Ave.
In addition to college and district officials, Mayor Julian Castro will be attending.
Tobin Lofts is the result of a public-private partnership between this college and The NRP Group LLC.
The college provided land that was formerly three student parking lots in exchange for student access to a parking garage at Tobin Lofts.
After remarks and a ribbon-cutting, guests will be taken on tours of the four-story apartment building.
Tobin Lofts features a pool, recreation room, gym and tanning room and has 201 beds available for lease.
Occupancy is 191 students at this college and 75 students at other colleges.
They live in configurations of one-, two- and four-bedroom apartments.
Although students may share an apartment, they sign individual leases.
For more information, call 210-254-9160.
