Campus Improvements 

The buzzes, beeps and clangs of construction are sounds that you hear regularly on the West Texas A&M University campus as our stomping grounds continue to evolve. Expanding and improving the campus is an ongoing priority that brings new life to WT with every completed project.

For those that haven’t visited campus in the past several years, the change in the landscape will be astonishing. Campus beautification, renovations, and construction will ensure the home of the Buffs is the best that it can be. A newly remodeled JBK and food court, Engineering and Computer Sciences Building and Bivins Nursing Learning Center will provide our students with first-rate spaces for both recreation and learning. In 2018 we’ll see the completion of the brand new, state-of-the-art Agricultural Sciences Complex and the new WTAMU Amarillo Center in the heart of downtown Amarillo. Later down the line we’ll have Buffalo Stadium for football and other exciting events right here on campus. Couple the new growth with carefully manicured lawns, colorful flowerbeds and stately trees, and it explains why Newsweek and The Daily Beast rank WTAMU as one of the most beautiful colleges in the United States.

Here are some of the improvements currently happening at WTAMU.

West Texas A&M University is changing the landscape of Amarillo with the creation of a permanent campus in the heart of the city. The new Buff stomping grounds will be located in the Commerce Building at 8th Avenue and South Tyler Street, a central location that allows for future expansion.

The creation of the permanent four-year university will further efforts to revitalize
and energize downtown Amarillo, while helping provide a highly qualified workforce for area employers. The WTAMU Amarillo Center, currently located in the Chase Tower, has been a resounding success. The renovation of and move to the nearby Commerce Building will allow WTAMU to serve more students in the region.

Agricultural Sciences Complex


In addition to the restructure of the College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences, the Texas Legislature recently passed bills that will allow the University to issue more than $38 million worth of tuition revenue bonds for the construction of a new Agricultural Sciences Complex. The facility will benefit teaching and research in expanded space covering more than 140,000 square feet.

“The realignment of the college and construction of the new Ag Sciences Complex will allow agricultural sciences to better serve our students and the industries that feed the world,” Dr. Dean Hawkins, who will serve as acting dean of the College of Agriculture and Natural Sciences, said. “This will help propel agricultural science forward to a new level of excellence.”
