About SPB

If you like concerts, movies, comedians, free events, and many other fun activities, then SPB is the place for you! The Student Program Board (SPB) at the University of Houston is a fee-funded student organization that exists to create programs that appeal to the student body by providing an array of diverse activities throughout the year.

The Student Program Board’s mission is to enhance the student experience at the University of Houston and bring the University of Houston community together through entertaining, thought-provoking, and programming inclusive events.

We aim to program for every student on the UH campus, by staying connected and understanding our students’ wants and needs. We focus on diversity, both in our programming and in the building of our team. The Student Program Board is a great way to get involved with campus life and an easy way to meet a lot of great new people.
