Around The Hall

Named after Kalpana Chawla who was a proud UT Arlington Alumna and astronaut crew member aboard the Columbia space shuttle sadly destroyed over North Texas in February of 2003. 

Two unique features to this community are the KC Remembrance Wall that tells the story of Kalpana's extraordinary life story and the building's Time Capsule to be opened in 2034.
KC Hall is not just a place to sleep and study. It also offers a host of ways to get involved. From working with our Hall Council or RHA program to competing against the rest of the campus as part of one of our intramural teams and participating in hall programs, KC Hall offers something for everyone.

KC Hall is one of two locations on campus (West Hall) to feature zero gravity relaxation chairs.
