Construction of the 103,606 square-foot UTEP Miner Canyon State-of-the-Art Student Housing Complex began in spring 2014 and opened in 2015. The two four-story residential buildings – the boomerang-shaped Copper Hall and Whispering Springs Hall – accommodates 352 students in 83 apartments that come in several designs from one room efficiencies to four-bedroom suites that house six people. The complex also includes a large community center, Boquillas Hall, which features offices, a 10-seat computer lab and community room. Each building follows UTEP’s signature Bhutanese architecture.
