Eastfield

The Eastfield Campus rises impressively from the plains of eastern Dallas County. Sometimes known as the “Educational Village” because of its unique architecture, it is located on 244 acres at the intersection of Interstate 30 and Motley Drive in Mesquite. Functional building clusters give students easy access to classrooms and labs and the overall aesthetic effect has earned Eastfield several architectural awards of excellence. The careful landscape planning includes terraced areas throughout the campus and are a show case of esthetic local drought resistant plants.
