The University of Texas, Arlington, has named its USD 21 million-residence hall after India-born astronaut Kalpana Chawla, who earned her master's degree there in aerospace engineering in 1984.

The three-storey building houses 421 students and was specially designed for a programme that will encourage students to study together.

Kalpana Chawla Hall features the Mavericks Scholars Programme, which is designed to develop a community between students in a particular major, discipline, or common interest through course work, activities, study groups and peer and faculty mentorship.
