Bryan Air Force Base is a former United States Air Force base located just west of Bryan, Texas. Today, the location houses the Texas A&M University Riverside Campus.
In 2006, the Texas A&M College of Architecture completed an 8,000-square-foot (700 m2) Built Environment Teaching and Research Facility also known as Architecture Ranch. Architecture Ranch is located on 12 acres (4.9 ha) of the Texas A&M Riverside Campus.
A Texas A&M System high density library was constructed in June 2012. The facility was designed to hold one million books and eliminate redundancy in the collections of the two university systems.
In September 2015, the 2,000-acre tract was transferred to The Texas A&M System. The campus originally Bryan's Air Force Base underwent a major change to what is know now as the Riverside Campus. It will once again tranform into a new concept and adopt a new name, RELLIS Campus, from an acronym of the Texas Aggies’ core values of respect, excellence, leadership, loyalty, integrity and selfless service. The campus will become a premier, high-tech research, technology development, and education center. RELLIS will undergo this 150 million dollar renovation to become the gateway between private and public entities.
Chancellor Sharp estimated as many as 10,000 students eventually could be studying at the RELLIS Gateway Center, as the education center would be called. Chancellor Sharp said the Texas A&M System is talking to the System’s 11 universities, as well as Blinn College, the local community college, about how best to serve students. The idea is for one campus to have the ability to shift ideas from laboratories to the marketplace while allowing a new path toward a college degree. That is the vison of Texas A&M RELLIS Campus.
