Science Learning Center
The Science Learning Center is a comprehensive facility for focused, research-based education in mathematics, science and engineering for UT Dallas freshmen and sophomores. The building is also equipped to serve as a major lab to study effective teaching and learning techniques in these fields, both at the college and K-12 levels. Opened in late summer 2010, the building includes a lecture hall, labs and faculty offices.
Founders Building - Renovation
The first facility on campus, the Founders Building opened in early 1964. Renovations include the addition of a new entrance lobby, classrooms, offices and related support spaces, and an open computer lab in the basement.
The Plaza and Trellis
An outdoor room created by a large trellis is situated at the north end of the mall. It is designed to offer year-round comfort by providing deep shade and the cooling effects of a circular fountain and mister. Existing steps in front of the Student Union Building have been re-clad in wood, and two large walls include areas for posting community notices.
The Mall
Organized by a series of linear pools and magnolias, the mall was designed to encourage conversations that extend beyond the classroom. Reflecting pools are the central element of the mall, stretching from the Naveen Jindal School of Management past the Student Union and ending at the Eugene McDermott Library. In times of drought, the pools can be drained to reveal a surface similar to a dry Texas creek bed. At the south end of the mall are additional seating areas and a human scaled, outdoor chess board.
Arts and Technology Building
The Edith O'Donnell Arts and Technology Building is a state-of-the-art research and instructional facility that was dedicated in Fall 2013.
Student Services Building
Opened in late summer 2010, the Student Services Building houses all the departments students will need during the course of their academic relationship with UT Dallas—the Bursar's Office, Career Center, Enrollment Services, Health and Counseling Centers, Housing Operations and the Dean of Students. The building is rated LEED Platinum. LEED green building certification encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices for better environmental and health performance.
Visitor Center and University Bookstore
The Visitor Center and University Bookstore is a central gathering point for campus visitors. It also houses a bookstore, copy center, a technology store and a coffee shop.
The Circle
The entrance forest opens at a large circle planted in turf and surrounded with matched trees. The circle orients visitors and serves as the formal entrance to UT Dallas. Four stone planters form a focal point at the head of the plaza. Each planter is surrounded with limestone and filled with lush greenery.
Entrance Forest
Visitors entering University Parkway immediately notice a densely planted natural Texas creek bed. Filled with native trees and shrubs, the creek bed is flanked by a native forest.
Campbell Road Entrance
Campbell Road Entrance
Rows of hedges between Waterview Parkway and Floyd Road provide intermittent glimpses of campus. A crescent stand of oak trees and a UT Dallas sign placed prominently in the center median welcome visitors.
