A New $100 Million Health Science Center to Be Built on the Denton Campus of Texas Woman’s University

The Texas Legislature has authorized $100 million to construct a health sciences building on the Denton campus of Texas Woman’s University.

In testimony before legislators during the regular session, Carine M. Feyten, chancellor of Texas Woman’s University had requested the legislature consider funding a health sciences facility for the Denton campus. The chancellor told legislators the building would include classrooms, offices, clinical space, and laboratories and would replace existing health sciences facilities that require major repairs or renovation, or expansion to accommodate growing enrollment.

“This state investment is a game-changer for Texas Woman’s, as the new building will allow the Denton campus to expand programming in high-need, health-related fields such as nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy and mental health, just to name a few,” said Chancellor Feyten. “The benefit will be felt throughout the Texas Woman’s University System by alleviating pressure on the clinical programs in Dallas and Houston as well, better positioning all three campuses to grow as we operationalize our status as the first university system in the nation with a commitment to women.”

The projected price tag for the proposed 250,000 square-foot building is $108 million. Funding in the legislation would cover more than 92 percent of the project’s cost.
