The University of Texas at El Paso has gone through a Miner growth spurt during the past 10 years where it has invested almost $400 million and added more than 1 million square feet of classroom, research and support space. We recently completed the Campus Transformation project that enhanced the natural beauty of the campus and the important underground infrastructure that will support the University’s growth for decades to come. We have kept our UTEP family and friends aware of our progress through timely UTEP On The Move updates, but will suspend those notices as major campus construction is done for at least a year. The next major project will be the planned Interdisciplinary Research Building on the west side of campus that should break ground in early 2017. We will issue campus bulletins when necessary to alert those who work, study or drive around campus about projects that could affect pedestrians or motorists. Until then, Go Miners!
A little landscaping and a few new signs to identify buildings are the only things left to do in the Centennial Plaza/Old Main areas. Crews will continue to add a few shrubs, trees and flowering plants in the campus core. Crews also will install a few more of the exterior locator signs in front of Old Main, Quinn and Vowell halls, and the Fox Fine Arts Complex.

An image of Paydirt Pete as a construction worker will be an icon used to help people identify the campus transformation construction work. Watch for him across campus.×
UTEP Today monitors are digital signage screens that display information relevant to students, faculty & staff. Campus transportation will also be posted on these boards. Look for them inside of campus buildings.×
