COLLEGE STATION -- Heads up. There are also changes in store for students at Texas A&M.

The board of regents met today to discuss the construction of a new residence hall.

The Texas A&M campus hasn't built a new dorm since the 1980's. The dorm would hold over 600 beds with all new updated amenities.

And construction could begin as early as next month.

"I think what it does is it is a modernization of our campus that is related to campus master plan. It is going to fill some needs for some of our older and decaying facilities that will have a new facility here that we can have students come here in live in," said TAMU spokesperson Jason Cook.

The board will reconvene tomorrow to vote on the issue and if approved, during the demolition of the three old dorms, students will be housed in the University Gardens Apartments until the new building is finished.

And it would be completed by June of 2013.
