Dallas Theological Seminary is proud to announce a new campus master plan that preserves its historic buildings while also modernizing its classrooms and creating a more friendly, walkable campus.
Front and center is a new, tree-lined central lawn with a new parking area for guests and students on one side and a new administrative building on the other (the blue building in the image above). The redesigned parking lots between Haskell and Apple streets will provide a more clear and inviting entrance to campus.
The new administrative building situated next to the almost 100-year-old Davidson Hall will house a Global Learning Center where professors and students in Dallas can connect with godly servant-leaders around the world. Davidson and Stearns will also be completely renovated with new offices, conferences rooms, and learning spaces. The facade that students have known since the time of Lewis Sperry Chafer, DTS's founder and first president, will remain the same, but the insides of both buildings will be completely modernized and restored.
The new campus master plan was approved in Spring 2013 and the groundbreaking will begin October 18, 2013. DTS leadership selected the architecture firm of Corgan Associates in Dallas to design and carry out the project.
Throughout the fall of 2013, a number of DTS faculty and staff members will be shuffling offices to make the renovation possible. Please check the campus map for current office locations. During renovations, Chapel will be held in Lamb Auditorium.
Further building plans will be announced soon.
