Last Look

In 2017, the Student Center celebrated its 50th anniversary. Alumni may remember it as the University Center, a name it retained until it underwent a major renovation. The UH student body took ownership of the project, providing feedback to campus leaders and approving a student fee increase for funds to aid the project’s completion. In recognition of this contribution, the building was renamed the Student Center when it re-opened in 2015. Current students and alumni alike can appreciate the new facility which is a reflection of the vital relationship between UH and the students that power its success.
