PARDON OUR PROGRESS

Pardon our Progress

UTA asks that you Pardon Our Progress as the University begins a sustained construction period.

Construction plans include building the new Science and Engineering Innovation and Research (SEIR) building, a 1,500 space parking garage, removing some antiquated housing, constructing a new residence and dining facility on the west campus, and addressing other needed campus improvements.

Please continue to check this page for the most current parking information.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as the University works hard to meet the needs of employees, students, and the community.

WHAT’S HAPPENING

Dates subject to change. See the online map linked above for locations.

SUMMER UPDATES

West Street between Nedderman and 4th Street will be closed all summer to install a water line for the SEIR building. Other campus construction projects near the Library and Life Science Building will keep Planetarium Place closed all summer. Motorcycle parking and ADA parking has been relocated to the Maverick Garage.

Asphalt repair and restriping of Lot 36 near Social Work will occur May 22-June 2. A small portion of the lot will remain available during construction. Alternative parking for Faculty/Staff permit holders is in F11/F12. Alternative student parking is in Lot 34 or the College Park Garages.

Cooper Chase apartments will permanently close July 31 and the lot will remain closed through demolition of the building. The area will be used to expand Lot 34 during the Fall semester.

The West Campus parking garage is expected to open the southern half mid-August. The northern half will open over winter break.

WEST CAMPUS EXPANSION PROJECT

The parking garage is the first step in the west campus construction. Designed like the College Park District parking garages, the garage will be built in two parts. The first will open for the fall 2017 semester. The second half will be open by December 2017.

A dining hall will be located between the Maverick Activities Center and the parking garage. The $21 million facility will feature an open concept with natural lighting and will include a student union space on the second floor. Construction will begin in spring 2017. The dining hall will open for the fall 2018 semester.

Two residential halls will be built where Lot 33 West is located. Construction on a 500-bed residence hall in the south part of Lot 33 West will begin in late spring. The $30.8 million facility is scheduled to open in fall 2018. The second 500-bed residence hall will be north of the first building.

The Parking and Transportation Office continues to work with the Office of Facilities Management to ensure parking improvements and expansions benefit the UTA community while minimally impacting day-to-day activities.
