In 2022 State of University Address On September 20, UT President Jay Hartzell announced that the UT Tower would undergo a restoration and renovation project. This will be the first time in its 85-year history that the tower has had such a project, and it will serve to “enhance and preserve its heritage”.
“The Tower remains a beacon of truth seekers, academic excellence and achievement, the very place where our first learning community gathered,” Hartzell said. “Soon the tower will shine even brighter.”
Details of the project have not yet been released, but Chairman Kevin Eltife and the UT System Board of Regents will provide more information at a later date.
