The satellite campuses are located within the former Hewlitt Packard office park.
Houston — Satellite campus suites for the University of Houston, the University of Houston-Downtown, Texas Southern University and Sam Houston State University have been completed at the former Hewlett Packard five-building, 1.2 million-square-foot office park at 20515 State Hwy. 249 in Houston. The satellite campuses, named University Center at University Park, were created for students within the Lone Star College System, a community college system that supports about 85,000 students, who wish to transition to a 4-year college without leaving home. The University of Houston-Downtown occupies a 25,000-square-foot campus suite within the former Hewlett Packard office park; the University of Houston, a 17,000-square-foot campus suite; Texas Southern University, a 12,500-square-foot campus suite; and Sam Houston State University, a 12,000-square-foot campus suite. Cadence McShane Construction Co. served as the project contractor, and Kirksey Architecture and VLK Architects provided architectural services.
