Blinn College’s newest residence hall blends all the comforts of home with advanced classroom technology to ensure that students enjoy a comfortable, collaborative educational experience. Students can choose to live in a four-bedroom, two-bathroom suite or a two-bedroom, one-bathroom suite. Mill Creek Hall is a 485-bed student housing complex with study rooms, teaching rooms, lobby/office space, laundry room, common areas, and Resident Director and Resident Advisor (RA) rooms. The facility also features two 3D-printer rooms and two technology classrooms designed to encourage collaborative student learning.

The technology classrooms include 24 Group Learning Stations. Designed to seat four to six students, these custom-built stations include a large monitor installed at the end of each table and 110-volt and USB power outlets. Projectors with 133-inch screens are in each classroom and can receive input from any number of devices from the instructor’s lectern, or any one of the Learning Stations to an individual student’s device.

The addition of Mill Creek Hall helps Blinn meet the demand for the Brenham Campus’ growing enrollment.
