The University of Texas at Dallas Sciences Building progresses the institution’s goal of becoming one of the world’s leading research universities. Designed to attract intelligent and innovative students and faculty to the campus, the new facility also strives to provide an environment for inspiring collaboration and promoting bold action within diverse areas of study.

Anchoring the new science quad, the multistory Sciences Building contains laboratories, classrooms, collaboration space, offices, and support space primarily for mathematics, physics, space sciences, and the UTeach Program—which trains math and science majors for teaching careers. The new facility also supports optimal faculty and staff productivity as they carry out various teaching, advising, and research activities. Inspired by the closely correlated teaching missions of the programs within, such as Mathematical Sciences and Physics, the building’s siting further amplifies the synergy of multidisciplinary research and collaboration.

With an eye toward the future, the facility is designed to accommodate growth for 1,750 additional students, 50 tenured and tenure-track faculty members, 20 senior lecturers, and an additional $7.5 million in annual research funding.
