# Stories to follow in 2019: UH System to open Katy campus in fall
The latest: Construction is ongoing, and the campus will open on time in the fall, said Jay Neal, associate vice president and chief operating officer for University of Houston-Sugar Land and UH-Katy. The university expects to construct additional buildings on the 46-acre campus as needed. Additionally, Houston Community College purchased land immediately north of the UH-Katy campus at 228 Colonial Parkway, Katy, to relocate and expand its own Katy campus. HCC will offer freshman- and sophomore-level courses and associate’s degrees that will directly transfer to UH Katy.
The University of Houston System is asking the legislature for an additional $75 million to construct a second 150,000-square-foot facility at the site of its Katy campus, where crews are already working round-the-clock.
An 80,000-square-foot campus is set to open in Katy on 46 acres of land near the intersection of Interstate-10 and the Grand Parkway this fall, but now UH wants to expand that by adding an additional facility, said Chris Stipes, UH director of media relations.
