Construction To Bring Changes to Main Campus

Traffic, Parking and Pedestrian Walkways to be Impacted

Beginning June 5, work associated with the construction of the new Science and Engineering Building (SEB) will begin. This will impact traffic, parking, and pedestrian routes on the south parts of Main Campus.

Some parking spaces will no longer be available due to the construction of the SEB. They are located in the Ximenes Avenue Lot and Ford Avenue Lot adjacent to the AET and BSE, as well as a portion of Bauerle Road Lot 1. If you currently park in those lots, please plan accordingly. 

Access to the south section of the Paseo Del Sur will be closed to faculty, staff, students and visitors from June 5 to August 20.

The Science and Engineering Building will provide classrooms, faculty offices and science and engineering research and instructional laboratories. It will also offer additional collaborative learning spaces for students. SEB will support the new Chemical Engineering degree program and the new College of Sciences Brain Health Institute. Also with a presence in the building are the departments of Biology and Chemistry, as well as a Maker Space for the College of Engineering. This building is part of UTSA’s strategic plan for providing state-of-the-art space for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and research. 

Construction on the SEB is projected to cost $95 million and to be the largest construction project in UTSA history. Funding was primarily from Tuition Revenue Bond proceeds.
