AUSTIN - The University of Texas at Austin has launched construction of the new 515,000-sf Dell Medical School in the southeastern portion of campus.
The campus is located at the intersection of 15th St. and Red River St., near the current site of University Medical Center Brackenridge and UT Austin's School of Nursing.
The school will include research, educational and administrative facilities, as well as a medical office building and parking garage. The first facilities are expected to be complete for the inaugural class of students in fall 2016.
In 2013, the UT System Board of Regents committed $334 million for the construction.
Additionally, the Seton Healthcare Family has committed $295 million to build a new 211-bed teaching hospital to replace the aging University Medical Center Brackenridge.
The Michael & Susan Dell Foundation also pledged $50 million to establish the school.
