The new UT Dallas Residence Hall was officialy open for Freshman move-in on August 12, 2009. Volunteers from several student organizations were on hand to help freshman move in to the Residence Hall.

On Aug. 12, 2009, the UT Dallas community came out to welcome the first group of freshmen to move into the new 144,000-square-foot Residence Hall. The new Residence Hall features a large rotunda area, a community kitchen, study areas, and state-of-the-art laundry facilities. It also offers freshmen an option to join the Living Learning Communities. The Living Learning Communities are small groups of freshmen who share common academic goals or interests. Students involved in these communities in fall 2009 will live in the new Residence Hall, attend at least one class a semester together and participate as a group in activities, such as service learning projects and social events.

The rotunda area consists of the community kitchen, a ping pong table, a pool table a community piano and couches for the students to lounge on. The new Residence Hall will feature a Information Desk that will be staffed 24 hours a day.
