When IST Austria started in 2009 the campus looked very different than it does today. It consisted merely of the Central Building with the Raiffeisen Lecture Hall and the voestalpine Building. The first laboratory building, the Bertalanffy Foundation Building, was opened for experimental research groups in October 2010, Lab Building East in November 2012, and Lab and Office Building West in December 2015.

Since its opening, the campus has continued to expand. Apartment buildings (opened 2012 and 2017) offer employees housing on campus. In 2015 the new cafeteria building was opened as the number of employees had outgrown the small restaurant which used to be in the Central Building. In 2018 the Administration Building was opened to the growing administration unit. 2018 also saw the groundbreaking for what is to become Lab Building 5. A visitor center and Lab Building 6 are planned over the next few years.

The growth of campus infrastructure reflects the increase in scientists and staff, and the excellent research done at IST Austria. In 2009 the first professors to join IST Austria were biologist Nick Barton and mathematician Herbert Edelsbrunner. The first call for PhD students was in 2010, and IST Austria celebrated its first graduates in 2015. IST Austria Ph.D. Scholarship 2023
