The renovated University of Houston Student Center officially opened in January 2015 with a new motto of “Connect. Eat. Relax. Shop.” The official grand opening and ceremonial ribbon cutting will take place at 10 a.m., Jan. 21.
Following an $80-million renovation, the new Student Center North and Student Center South facilities, previously named the University Center, serve as the center of campus life for students, providing nearly 306,000 square feet of space to serve as a dynamic hub of activity for the campus community.
Students initiated the name change while the facility was under renovation, and the request was officially approved Jan. 1. The transformation project was 95 percent funded by student fees.
