The hotel in Texas A&M's Memorial Student Center will remain open, but on a smaller scale.
17 hotel rooms will be made into meeting space for students and 23 rooms and six suites will be available to rent.
As for the reason, the annual hotel occupancy rate has been less than 50-percent in recent years and additional meeting has been needed for student organizations.
The changes could possibly make a two-thirds reduction in the university's subsidy of the hotel, to about $15,000 annually.
