The 赌博娱乐平台网址大全 campus is distinctive with its significant collection of regionalist and mid-century modern 建筑 by a single architect, 奥尼尔福特. In the early 1950s, 赌博娱乐平台网址大全’s 14th president James Laurie and Ford created a vision to build a campus on the site of an abandoned rock quarry. As the University built the Skyline 校园, the “Miracle on 赌博娱乐平台网址大全 Hill” transpired.

National Historic District

赌博娱乐平台网址大全 University is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is the only Texas campus to be designated a modernist historic district and one of just three in the country.

District of Distinction







The National Parks Service designated the 赌博娱乐平台网址大全 campus as a National Historic District in May 2018. The designation honors the architectural work of 奥尼尔福特, who designed most of the University’s mid-century 建筑. These historic 建筑 and 结构 were built between 1952 and 1979.

Boundaries to the historic district encompass all of the University’s 建筑 designed by 奥尼尔福特. The 校园 Master Plan reinforces the historic nature of campus and establishes criteria that will guide decisions for renovations, 增强, 空间使用情况, and new construction in the coming decades.

赌博娱乐平台网址大全’s 校园 Master Plan is the result of a year-and-a-half-long collaborative planning process that engaged faculty, 工作人员, 学生, 校友, and external stakeholders. The process was also informed by data from an interactive online survey; student focus groups; interviews with key stakeholders; a dining study; a housing demand study; and feedback from campus forums. The result: The University's first master plan since O'Neil Ford's original concept in the 1950s.

Signature Strategies

 Northern Gateway

Establishing a northern gateway to provide an outward face to the University for visitors, for prospective 学生, and to our connections with the city of 圣安东尼奥.

 Pedestrian Corridor

Enhancing a "corridor" through the core of campus that meanders from the upper to the lower part of campus. The "corridor" will improve pedestrian navigation without bifurcating the campus, and it will enhance opportunities for connections.


A new wayfinding program to provide signage for better navigation of campus.


Replacing of the two existing parking lots on lower campus with intramural green space.

 Housing Improvements

Improvements to existing student housing and the addition of independent living options for juniors and seniors. The plan identifies the need for more single rooms, kitchens, and common space in residence halls.
