The Huntsville Item reports that Sam Houston Village is undergoing renovations during the Fall 2011 semester:
Only half the residents who usually occupy Sam Houston Village were able to move in last week before the start of classes on Wednesday [August 24]. Part of the dorm has been closed as work is being done on the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system and the parking garage. Work is set to begin on Sept. 1 and be completed by Aug. 1, just in time for students to move in for the fall 2012 semester. [The dorm] will be shut down completely for the spring semester when students leave for the Christmas break. That will allow construction crews to finish the project so the dorm will be ready for the fall.
