Visit the UH Law Center

In light of the growing concerns regarding COVID-19, The Office of Admissions has suspended tours and on-campus visits at this time. However, we are still operating and have a number of online and virtual options for admitted students! Please see below to learn about the available visits.

Law Center Tours

We are excited to share the construction of the John M. O’Quinn Law Building!  The new Law Center building is made possible by the philanthropic support of The John M. O’Quinn Foundation, our Cornerstone Club members, our alumni, the state legislature, and President Renu Khator.  Please visit the building website to view renderings of the new building and watch the UHLC Topping off Ceremony.  This new state of the art building will be open by the Fall 2022 semester, as such we are not providing tours of the current building.
