Built in 1896, Houston Hall is the oldest student union building in the country. Today, this historic building remains the center of campus life - a place where students, faculty, staff, alumni and guests gather for social, recreational, educational and cultural activities. After a multi-million dollar renovation project in 2000, Houston Hall looks much like it did in 1896 but with all the modern conveniences. With fourteen special event spaces, multimedia technology, a food court, and vending and retail space, Houston Hall is a conference center with character.  The building amenities include the information desk, the Houston Market, University Copy Service, Paris Cafe Creperie, and Insomnia Cookies.  The rooms within Houston Hall that you may reserve are listed below.
