AUSTIN - After almost 80 years of being scattered across campus, University of Texas (UT) liberal arts students finally have a space of their own in the new 200,000-sf Liberal Arts Building. The building’s cost is projected to be $87 million, less than the project’s initial expected cost of $100 million.
The building also contains roughly 16,000 more usable sf than originally planned and is expected to receive LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The new building, attached to the Student Activity Center, will house several departments within the College of Liberal Arts.
The college has not had its own building since UT’s first permanent building, Old Main, was torn down in 1935.
