Campus Master Plan
Honoring the Past, Preparing for the Future
The National Parks Service designated the Trinity campus as a National Historic District in late May 2018, four months after the Texas Historical Commission approved Trinity’s nomination as a historic district. The designation honors the architectural work of O’Neil Ford, who designed most of the University’s mid-century buildings, and will enable Trinity to shape a modern campus that honors the past.
This designation is a key component of the Trinity University Campus Master Plan, which pairs the University’s academic mission and the strategic plan objectives with Trinity’s design history. The designation contributes to this creation of a vision for the campus that is inspiring, functional, and enduring.
