To help out in this time of COVID-19, UTPB is offering its already empty dorm apartment buildings to Medical Center Health System and ORMC medical staff.

According to the Odessa American, UTPB is doing what many universities are doing across the country, making agreements with local hospitals and medical centers in the communities of colleges to provide housing for medical workers trying to keep their family members healthy.

UTPB is offering the apartment dorms free of charge with an agreement that the apartments will be cleaned regularly by MCH, ORMC, or other entities.
