South Plains College’s new student residence hall was showcased in ceremonies Thursday on the Levelland campus. The new facility is named Nathan Tub Hall in honor of the college’s retired academic vice president and former regent. A dedication ceremony and open house began at 3 p.m.

Nathan Tubb Hall is a two-story 104-bed residence hall featuring a central common area with additional common areas located on each floor of two wings. The hall will house women in its first year of operation, although it is designed for co-educational living.

Tubb retired from SPC in 1981, after serving as the college’s first registrar and academic dean, then as academic vice-president. Following his retirement, Tubb served on the SPC Board of Regents from 1988 until 1996.
