Building for Growth

The University of Texas at Arlington is advancing plans for a new six-story Science, Engineering Innovation and Research building to help meet increasing student demand and to further the University’s emerging concentration in health science initiatives. State lawmakers approved $70 million in Tuition Revenue Bonds to support the project earlier this year, and additional funding will complete the anticipated construction budget. Work on the project is expected to begin in 2016 with completion in 2018.
