Build and conserve.
- TCU played its first football game as a member of the Big 12 in the “new” Amon G. Carter Stadium in 2012. The stadium, constructed in the Southwest Art Deco style, reflects the architectural heritage of Fort Worth and the original 1930s stadium. Opening to rave reviews as one of the best college football stadiums in the country, the totally donor-funded project has transformed the fan experience.
- Construction is under way on two residence halls on the Worth Hills campus. Work will begin in spring 2012 on a new academic building and a major addition/renovation project for the Annie Richardson Bass Building, part of the planned Intellectual Commons on the east campus.
- In recent years, the University has made substantial investments in more than a dozen new facilities, such as the Brown-Lupton University Union, Clarence and Kerry Scharbauer Hall, the Mary Wright Admission Center, the Jane Justin Field House and four residence halls.
- TCU follows an ongoing plan through which it upgrades teaching spaces, residence halls and academic facilities to state-of-the-art standards.
- TCU is a leader in sustainability efforts and is listed in The Princeton Review’s Guide to 311 Green Colleges. All new construction projects are designed for certification under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program.
- The campus encompasses 277 acres in a residential neighborhood five miles from the heart of downtown Fort Worth.
Point of pride: In spite of unprecedented construction activity, Horned Frog fans were able to cheer their team on in their home stadium throughout its $164 million, LEED-certified makeover.
