TAMIU’s facilities are breathtaking at first but become normal mainstays for students by the end of first semester. The school recently built a new University Success Center that combines the bookstore and offices for financial aid, registar’s, and admissions in one building. Most students seem to be pleased that they don't have to walk to different places to get to the financial aid or registar's offices. It’s also nice because once people register for classes, they can just walk a few steps in the same building to buy their books. The campus also has a state-of-the-art recreational sports center that includes two basketball courts, ping-pong tables, a weight room, more than a dozen cardio machines, and a variety of personal training and fitness classes. The Sue and Radcliffe Killam Library has a large collection of books and research data that is more than adequate for the student's needs.
The planetarium is very entertaining if you're interested in a light show, and the water fountain in the middle of campus is eloquently beautiful. A minor complaint could be that a student may have to walk from the University Success Center to Killam Library, which is on the other side of the campus. But that doesn't necessarily tend to bother students too much. There are also only five dining vendors on campus, but each is unique. Overall, the campus has a variety of functional and adequate facilities that cater to any student's needs.
