UT System Building History & Information
In February 2014, the UT System Board of Regents approved plans to consolidate UT System offices from five antiquated buildings into a new office building as a way to reduce maintenance and operating expenses and improve efficiencies. Construction of the 19-story, 330,000 SF building began in March 2015 and was completed in July 2017. At that time, System Administration employees from multiple locations throughout Austin were moved into the new UT System Building.
The UT System Building is 19 stories tall and approximately 337,000 gross square feet (excluding parking). Eight floors provide parking for employees, tenants and guests. Six floors are UT System Administration offices. Retail, restaurant and office lease space are available on four floors. The Board of Regents meeting room and support space, along with a multipurpose room available for use by all UT institutions, make up the second floor. The building was designed to achieve LEED Silver certification.
