Central Plant

What happens inside the Power Plant building located between M.D. Anderson library and the School of Engineering?Have you ever wondered?

  1. How our campus gets its cooling and heating?
  2. How much installed capacity we have and, as we continue our journey to achieve Tier-1 status, if we have enough capacity to serve all the planned new buildings that will come online?

Come and join us for the next Plant Operations tour of the Central Plant. During this tour you will see the Central plant controls room, cooling equipment, chemical treatment room, electrical gear, and the crowd favorite - looking inside the operational steam boiler.
