State leaders have paved the way for new construction at UH Sugar Land (UHSL), a campus of the University of Houston. UHSL received a $54 million allocation in HB100, which the governor recently signed, to construct a new 150,000-sq.-ft. classroom building.
“If UH is going to continue to meet the higher education needs of the Houston area, we need to be building where people live,” said Provost Paula Myrick Short, UH senior vice president for academic affairs. “There is tremendous growth in Fort Bend County. We are grateful for the incredible support of the legislature, which will help further develop this campus and expand higher education opportunities in the region.”
The new building, planned to be completed in 2019, will primarily house programs offered by the UH College of Technology. A portion of the college will relocate to Sugar Land, and additional programs in business, education and health-related fields are also expected in the next two to five years
