UTD From Above


What started as Founders Building and a handful of smaller facilities has blossomed into a bustling modern college campus.
Take a look at the UTD campus metamorphosis over nearly 50 years.

Circa 1969

Founders Building, TAGER tower and a faculty/staff running track made up the campus of the Southwest Center for Advanced Studies, which would soon become UT Dallas.


The Phase II construction included the creation of Cecil H. Green Hall, the Erik Jonsson Academic Center, the Eugene McDermott Library and Karl Hoblitzelle Hall.


After Phase II, the Alexander Clark Center (bottom left) and the Student Union were added to campus.


The addition of an engineering school saw the creation of the Engineering and Computer Science North building.
