AT UTA, we are future-focused. That means aligning and developing our resource and infrastructure plans to support our institution for years to come. Our campus supports our growing student body, groundbreaking research, and academic excellence from our physical structures to our financial strategies. We are dedicated to building a campus that supports our community today and for years to come.

We are investing in our students, in our research, and in our community. UTA estimates an additional $700 million in capital investments over the next 10 years. These projects range from facility renewals to new centers that support and sustain the growth of our programs. We are dedicated to developing teaching and learning spaces that enrich the student experience, enhancing research spaces, and creating a sense of belonging and identity through our campus.
UTA is taking a close look at our infrastructure and ensuring that we focus on important improvements to handle increased capacity for our students, faculty, and staff. Our future project priorities include development of the vacated School of Social Work site, reinvestment in our Performing Arts Center, University Center renovations, and the creation of an iconic central space on campus to gather—to highlight just a few.
We’re also increasing transparency of the budget and finances to support stakeholder engagement and developing operational and financial strategies to strengthen the fiscal health and financial future of the University.
