A $115 million construction project for the University of North Texas at Frisco’s future campus is projected to begin next October.

The project will construct the first building along with related site and infrastructure improvements for the campus, according to university documents. The building will be around 130,000 gross square feet for classrooms, laboratories and collaborative spaces.

A large amphitheater may be included in the construction, per university documents.

Construction is expected to be completed in November 2022.
