The Segovia Unit is considered a pre-release facility, which helps transition inmates for release by helping them meet parole requirements and prepare for their upcoming release.  In most instances, inmates at Segovia Unit are within two years of their release, parole date, or sentence expiration.  Inmate housing consists of two housing structures with three 204 bed dormitories in each.  Each 204 bed dormitory is divided into 68 bed sections with roving officers and supervisors in a fixed booth who continually monitor the inmates.

Inmates at Segovia Unit are encouraged to participate in educational opportunities that include literacy courses, adult basic education classes, and can even earn their GED during their incarceration.  Additional courses provided include substance abuse education, various support groups, life skills classes, cognitive intervention, and the CHANGES pre-release course.  Select inmates at Segovia Unit can work in the laundry department, in facility maintenance, and may provide services for the Texas Department of Transportation, the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife, local food banks and the Habitat for Humanity.  Additional work details include working in a unit garden, and in various agricultural operations.
