This mixed-use development introduces a unique building type uncommon on campuses, integrating a welcome center, retail space, and the first campus parking garage. The University of Houston Welcome Center serves as a hub for visitors and students, providing comprehensive information and student services. Students can seek academic and other assistance at this facility.
The parking garage features an academic architectural style and provides 1,500 car spaces across five levels, meeting the university’s parking needs. Retail shops on the plaza cater to the all-day demand for activities. The building has received praise from visiting officials and won the Outstanding Design award in the Student Centers/Service Areas category at the 2007 American School & University Educational Interiors Showcase.
