Campus Transformation

As The University of Texas at El Paso approaches the celebration of 100 years of service to the Paso del Norte region, we have begun to implement a new phase in the recent expansion of our campus facilities. Designed by Lake/Flato and Ten Eyck architectural firms, this aesthetically pleasing outdoor campus transformation project will use pedestrian walkways and green spaces to knit together campus buildings, creating a climate consistent with UTEP's development as a national research (Tier One) university with a 21st century student demographic.

UTEP's rich heritage, location on the U.S.-Mexico border, attractive geological features and Chihuahuan Desert landscape provide a unique campus setting. Together with the unifying Bhutanese architectural style of our buildings, they offer us an opportunity to transform the campus into a national model of campus design which will greatly enrich our quality of life. Comfortable and pleasing to the eye, the campus transformation will increase pride in the University and reinforce our collective commitment to excellence.

Ways of Supporting Campus Transformation

Gifts to the UTEP Campus Transformation Fund (CTF) provide alumni and friends, as well as corporations and foundations, the opportunity not only to make a highly visible and permanent investment in UTEP, but also to have a major impact on the quality of life on this campus and in our surrounding community. According to UTEP President Dr. Diana Natalicio, our campus transformation initiative “promises to be one of the lasting legacies of our Centennial.”

University stakeholders who are interested in making a financial contribution to support these projects may go to or contact the UTEP Development Office at (915) 747-8533.

The University of Texas at El Paso will be one hundred years old in 2014. Over the past century, each of us—students, staff, and faculty—have brought our dreams to this University and worked together to achieve them. Learn more »
