Texas State University will begin construction in August of 2024 on the  $140 million STEM Classroom Building in San Marcos. Designed by Ayers Saint Gross and PGAL, the eight-story, 168,000-gsf facility will house the departments of mathematics and computer science, as well as providing instructional venues, class labs, departmental offices, and research labs for several other academic disciplines.

A welcoming reception area will open onto a two-story lobby, which can support a variety of functions including lectures, events, exhibitions, and more. The main entry level will also offer tutoring suites and large classroom spaces.

Located in the university’s growing science and engineering district, the sustainable structure will leverage high-performance glazing to admit natural light without additional heat gain. Skanska is the construction manager at risk for the project, which is slated for completion in July of 2026.
