TWU to celebrate grand opening of Parliament Village

Aug.13, 2019 — DENTON — Texas Woman’s University will officially open Parliament Village, including Mary’s Hall on Aug. 23 at 9 a.m.

The ceremony will take place on the east side of the new residential village and will include remarks from Chancellor Carine M. Feyten as well as Mary L.A. Stanton, for whom Mary’s Hall is named. The ceremony will be followed by a short reception, and residential move-in will begin at 10 a.m.

The sophomore village will house 872 residents, providing a convenient and practical living environment for second-year students. Amenities include study lounges, multi-purpose meeting rooms, training rooms, maker space, fitness center, laundry facilities and Housing offices.

“In recent years, TWU has used hotels and leased apartments off campus to accommodate our students,” said Monica Mendez-Grant, TWU vice president for student life. “Parliament Village will bring those students back to campus and will create an environment that supports and enriches their academic goals.”

Structured as a public-private partnership, Collegiate Housing Foundation, a national non-profit entity, serves as the residential facility owner through the issuance of project-based, tax exempt debt financing. Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions served as the developer.
