Who We Are
The Texas Union was built in 1933 to serve as a college independent community center or "living room" on campus. It is one of the buildings designed by Paul Cret who also designed the Tower and Main Building, Goldsmith Hall and Texas Memorial Museum on campus. Money to build the Union was raised by the Texas Exes in a campaign led by Thomas Watt Gregory.
What We’re Fundraising For
As a core destination for students, faculty, staff and visitors from all across the world, the Unions serves as a central meeting place for all types of events, meetings and social engagement. We are raising funds to support the preservation of this lovely old building central to campus as well as establish new sustainability and engagement programs for our students to enrich their campus experience and allow for growth opportunities and shared experience.
The impact of donors gifts will ensure that the Unions is able to continue to provide meaningful engagement and programs for our students in a safe and welcoming environment.
