The UT campus continued to evolve in 2018.  

Summer Construction Projects Improvements to campus throughout Summer 2018 more » close »

Graduate and Health Studies Building — Construction is nearing completion. Once a temporary certificate of occupancy is received at the end of June, furniture and equipment will be moved in. Anticipated move-in date for faculty and staff is mid-July. This will allow adequate time for start-up, commissioning and training of the state-of-the-art equipment and systems to support the nursing and physician assistant spaces.

Smiley Hall — Work will continue this summer to refresh the residence hall and upgrade plumbing, flooring and finishes. A new fire sprinkler system will be installed along with an elevator to the second floor.

Riverside Center — Work will begin on the renovation and expansion of the Riverside Center this summer.

Brevard Avenue and Spaulding Drive — Brevard Avenue between Spaulding Drive and North A Street will be restored over the summer to its original brick pavers. Spaulding Drive will also be closed during portions of the summer to allow for underground work and realignment. Watch for signage.

Morsani Hall — Chilled water infrastructure will be extended to Morsani Hall, which will cause some sidewalk and possible street closures around the project. Watch for signs throughout the summer.

Chiller Plant — An additional chiller, cooling tower and support equipment will be added to the main chiller plant on the west side of campus. This will provide plant capacity and redundancy to support new buildings added to the campus chilled water loop. 

Plant Hall — Repairs to the Science Wing will continue, as well as upgrades to the electrical system on the ground level and other miscellaneous updates. 

North Boulevard — The light poles along North Boulevard will be replaced to match those found on the rest of campus. There will also be some improvements to sidewalks along North Boulevard, as well as the fencing along the north side of campus so it will match the brick columns and black picket fencing along the south side, carrying the UT brand to both sides of campus.

Falk Theatre — Repairs will continue along the front façade to tuck-point brick, clean and seal. Cast stone features will be restored along with the original tile roofing replaced. Additional repairs will also occur along the back façade.

» Grand opening

To support academic needs in its expanding health sciences and graduate programs, The University of Tampa has announced it will build a new, six-story academic building in the heart of campus.

The nursing program, recently named Florida’s best, will be housed in the new building, as well as the program in physician assistant studies under development, UT’s Office of Graduate Studies, classrooms, health sciences labs, study spaces and faculty offices.

The Graduate and Health Studies Building will be constructed on what is currently the intramural field in the center of UT’s campus, just east of Pepin Stadium. The building will blend with the architecture of UT’s campus, with red brick, precast concrete, metal and glass. It will offer panoramic views of campus and downtown Tampa, and will include typical Florida landscaping.

At 90,000 square feet, the building will be UT’s largest academic building.

“With this facility we hope to strengthen UT’s health sciences programs with state-of-the-art spaces, including simulation labs, a digital anatomy lab and all the latest health technology and equipment,” UT President Ron Vaughn said. “Plus, this building will enhance our graduate programs.”

The building will also have a state-of-the-art audiovisual system, the same as used in health care facilities, that is designed to capture clinical and learning events for future review and assessment by students from anywhere. This will help to facilitate a unique connectivity to other health care facilities, enhancing the student clinical experience.

The building is expected to be completed in Fall 2018.
