Project Summary

The Sarah M. and Charles E. Seay Building Addition will provide approximately 34,911 gross square feet to support the Department of Psychology; Institute for Mental Health Research and Center for Perceptual Systems. This will provide office and lab space for current and future researchers and their programs.

The addition will be located adjacent to the Sarah and Charles Seay Building (SEA) as shown in the Campus Masterplan.  SEA is located between Wichita Street and Speedway just north of East Dean Keeton.  The new addition will connect to the existing building on the north side where the loading dock exists currently.

Project Impacts

  • Pedestrian traffic on Wichita St. from Dean Keeton to north of the Bridgeway Building (BWY) will be directed to the west side of Wichita.

  • Pedestrian traffic on the north side of SEA will be directed northward to the south side of Aerospace Engineering (ASE).

  • Wichita will be closed to travel from Dean Keeton to the southeast corner of Lot 18.

Bicyclists are encouraged to refer to the City of Austin Bike Map.

The Construction Advisory web site will be an ongoing resource for information as work moves forward. Signage will be installed at key locations to assist with wayfinding. Due to the fluid nature of construction, this information is subject to change, but we will do our best to provide timely communication if changes are necessary.
