REVITALIZE THE CORE CAMPUS

Student Life Master Plan Conformance: Recent updates to the Flawn Academic Center are an excellent example of how Student Life spaces can help revitalize the campus core. This Student Life Master Plan suggests revitalization of the Texas Union, Whitis Court, and other Student Life facilities in the Campus Core.

The Core Campus, bounded by Guadalupe Street, San Jacinto Boulevard, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, and 27th Street, and including the original forty acres, contains the majority of UT Austin’s historic buildings and landscape, and is one of the most densely built American campus environments. The challenge is to address the Core’s aging buildings and infrastructure, while responding to the need to preserve but adapt historic buildings and landscape, the need to address changing patterns of research and teaching, and the need to resolve the frequent conflicts between cars, pedestrians, and bicycles.

FORGE STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS Universities no longer thrive in isolation. Partnerships with adjacent stakeholders have the potential to advance UT Austin’s academic, research, and student-life goals. Exploring potential city, state, and private sector partnerships for promoting and guiding development adjacent to the university campus and beyond is recommended as a priority initiative.

Student Life Master Plan Conformance: A Center For Entrepreneurship and Innovation is suggested for the ground floor of a new residence hall on University Avenue. This and other potential relationships can be explored to bridge students, the University and City of Austin.
