Existing Master Plans Several of The University of Texas at Austinâ€™s schools within the Core Campus have prepared master plans for their existing facilities and the surrounding areas of the campus. These schools include the Cockrell School of Engineering, the McCombs School of Business, and to a certain extent, the School of Architecture. The design strategies and facility recommendations from each of the school master plans are acknowledged within the overall campus master plan and in the strategy for the Campus Core. The following is an overview of the key building and site strategies from the school master plans.
Cockrell School of Engineering The Cockrell School of Engineering occupies several facilities in the Core Campus in the area bounded by Speedway, San Jacinto Boulevard, and East 24th Street. A master plan prepared for the school in 2009 outlines a strategy to build six new buildings containing a total of 1,000,000 square feet on the Main Campus, including proposed shared space with other colleges, and to renovate three buildings containing another 600,000 gross square feet. The strategy assumes that 340,000 gross square feet of existing buildings will be removed.
McCombs School of Business The McCombs School of Business is located in the southeast corner of the original Forty Acres, at the corner of East 21st Street and Speedway. In 2011, the school prepared a strategic facilities master plan that called for construction of a new Graduate School of Business building and the phased renovation of the existing building to create a higher-quality teaching and learning environment.
School of Architecture The School of Architecture is located in four buildings along Inner Campus Drive within the Forty Acres: Goldsmith Hall, Sutton Hall, Battle Hall, and the West Mall Office Building. Facility planning for the School of Architecture has consisted of a feasibility study for Battle Hall and West Hall which has master planning implications for the School.
