Creating a campus focal point

Speedway Mall has been completed!

Speedway Mall offers many opportunities to enrich the lives of students at The University of Texas at Austin. The Mall is an outdoor learning environment—a focal point of numerous campus activities and services that enrich the experience of students under the majestic canopies of the mature oak trees that line Speedway.

The mall is a place for students to gather informally, an area where student services and student organizations are promoted, a place for campus-wide festivals, and areas where scheduled performances by student music or dance groups occur during the day and at night. Speedway Mall contributes significantly to the learning experience for all students, while at the same time enhancing the campus experience of faculty, staff, and visitors.

The Speedway Mall has moved forward two opportunities outlined in UT Austin’s 2013 Campus Master Plan: revitalizing the core campus and facilitating safer and more efficient mobility.
