Celebrating Growth

TTUHSC Breaks Ground on New Expansion of Lubbock Campus

Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) broke ground today (June 9) for new buildings that will bring additional opportunities for education and research initiatives plus create a more seamless campus experience for students and visitors.
The $85.9 million project will consist of three parts: a north expansion that will create two new buildings north of the existing TTUHSC building, a west expansion that will add additional facilities to the existing TTUHSC building and the creation of a boulevard entrance to campus for accessibility.
“This expansion presents unprecedented opportunities to extend our traditional strengths in teaching, research and patient care,” TTUHSC President Tedd L. Mitchell, M.D., said. “New and expanded spaces will bind our campus together in ways that encourage interaction and promote collaboration. The years to come will be ones of transformation and growth, distinguished by the creativity and vision of our academic community.  I look forward to all that we will accomplish together as we approach our 50th anniversary as an institution.”
The West Expansion will supplement the existing TTUHSC building with an additional 125,000 gross square feet (GSF) by connecting the west side of the existing TTUHSC building to the Preston Smith Library of the Health Sciences. The space will provide educational and research facilities for anatomical sciences and will include an expansive, state-of-the-art gross anatomy laboratory.
