The University of Houston purchased land at University Center to build a $32 million campus. The site’s 80,000-square-foot location is at the northeast corner of the intersection of the Grand Parkway and I-10.
The facility will host about 2,000 students once it opens, and it may expand up to 10,000 students in time.
SmithGroupJJR was selected to design the new Katy facility, said Chris Stipes, UH director of media relations. Stipes said the university will break ground later this spring.
UH expects to begin holding classes at the Katy campus by fall 2019, Stipes said. Once the campus opens, students who currently attend classes at the university’s main and Victoria campuses will be moved to the Katy facility.
