When one door closes, another one opens. The University of Houston will say goodbye to Cougar Place as the residential facility will be deconstructed to pave the way for future enhancements to the campus.

After serving the university for 30 years, the facility has far outlived its expected life span, and officials have decided to deconstruct Cougar Place in order to make room for future housing. The University of Houston is taking steps to become a more residential campus and enhance student success, setting a goal to grow to an 8,000 bed campus by Fall 2013.

All materials, furniture, fixtures and equipment that can be salvaged from the deconstruction will be reused and recycled. The tile mural by Malou Flato that is currently displayed at the entry of Cougar Place will also be deconstructed, restored and then re-installed to an alternative location on campus.

Cougar Place will remain open throughout the summer for residents and conference participants as Moody Towers and the Quadrangle undergo renovations. Deconstruction will begin on Cougar Place at the end of Summer 2011. Current Cougar Place residents will transition in the fall to other campus facilities with similar features such as Calhoun Lofts, Cambridge Oaks and Cullen Oaks.
