With a TPC of $31.2 million, construction of the LBJ Student Center Expansion project began in June 2018. The expansion will include a refurbished main entry lobby, a second ballroom, conference rooms, meeting spaces, shared spaces for informal student gatherings and study spaces, a new lounge area, an expanded and renovated Welcome Center, an Alumni Center, and improved circulation within the expansion and renovated areas. The new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing building infrastructure systems will integrate with the building infrastructure upgrades made during the recent LBJ Student Center renovations.
