UH at Katy Grand Opening

More than 150 guests joined officials last October from the University of Houston and the University of Houston-Victoria for the official ribbon cutting and grand opening of the Katy Academic Building. The new three-story, 80,000-square-foot building will be a shared space for the two sister institutions. The facility opened to students in August 2019. The University of Houston at Katy is currently offering engineering graduate and undergraduate programs, and will debut three new undergraduate degrees and an engineering academy in partnership with HCC in fall 2020.
