Highlighting the Best of UH


From the UH News Room

  • Sitting Pretty: UH Designers Showcasing Customized Chairs Sept. 18

    Students from the University of Houston Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture Industrial Design program didn’t take the Wilsonart Challenge sitting down. Instead, they jumped at the opportunity to create innovative, functional chairs that would stand apart from other contemporary furniture designs.

  • UH Study Finds Print Readers Recall More Than Online Readers

    Readers abandoning print newspapers in favor of online news may want to consider the effect it’s having. A study conducted by a researcher at the University of Houston finds those who read printed news publications read more news and also remember more news than those who read news online.

  • UH Architecture Students Pave the Way for Innovative Recreation Areas

    The University of Houston has plenty of green space that is perfect for socializing, sitting and studying. Thanks to a group of students from UH’s Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture, the campus soon will have a new – but temporary – area in which to relax or chat with peers.

  • Multidisciplinary Research and Engineering Building to Foster Collaboration

    Groundbreaking for the University of Houston’s new $51 million Multidisciplinary Research and Engineering Building will be Oct. 6. Designed to encourage collaboration, it will house core facilities shared by researchers from departments around the campus.

  • UH Energy Symposium Series Focuses on Big Ideas

    UH Energy, the University of Houston’s energy initiative, will tackle some of the top issues facing the industry during its 2014-2015 Energy Symposium Series: Critical Issues in Energy. The popular series will feature four moderated discussions, beginning with U.S. energy independence.
