New Windows, Floors and More: Residence Halls See Renovations Over The Summer

(VIDEO) More than $5 million was spent to update Weymouth Hall, according to Sean Duggan with University Student Housing.

When most students move away from campus during the summer months, construction crews move in. Several residence halls were renovated over the summer, including Weymouth Hall. The high-rise, which was built in 1966, now houses nearly 600 students each school year. This summer, every window in the building was replaced. New flooring, vanities and pipes were also added.

"It beautifies the campus. It helps the campus look modern and well taken care of," Sean Duggan, managing director of University Student Housing, said. "That's a priority as we recruit students and we want students to stay at Texas Tech-- where they live is important."

Parts of Horn and Murray Halls were also updated over the summer. Construction of the new Honors Hall was also completed.
