Dedication to academic success created a need for additional academic support facilities. The Corps now has four, four-story leadership learning centers equipped with state-of-the-art computer labs, small and large group study rooms and instructional rooms. These facilities, located on the Quad, where the cadets live, total nearly 100,000 square feet and are dedicated to the academic success and professional development of our cadets.
Most cadets have access to the leadership learning centers directly from their dorms and can gather with other students at Texas A&M to study, complete group projects, or even unwind from a long day of classes. These spaces have created an environment where cadets focus more on academic tasks and less on maneuvering around campus.
The renovation of the Quad has been designed under two different phases, as of August 2016 phase one is complete and all four of the leadership learning centers are open. Dorms one through eight have been completely renovated and now house current cadets. During construction, the interior of the dorms was completely torn out, leaving nothing but a brick shell and allowing for the most efficient use of existing space. This makes it the first time that the dorms have been rebuilt since their original construction in 1939. The dorms now offer a safer, more efficient space for cadets to live while in the Corps.
