Belvin Hall – Huntsville TX

Description

Belvin Hall was the first student residence constructed on the campus of Sam Houston State University, then called Sam Houston State Teachers College. With an occupancy of 92, the building has remained a women-only residence since it opened. The Public Works Administration financed the four-story red brick building with a $150,000 grant and loan package.

The college built on an addition called Buchanan Hall in 1945 to support the increasing population of the school. Now known as Belvin-Buchanan Hall, the combined structure houses 209 girls.

    Belvin Buchanan Hall at Sam Houston State University had the lower level “formerly known as Belvin Cafeteria” renovated in 2015 and is now home to 205 co-ed students. The lower level is called the Fine Arts and Mass Communication (FAMC) Creative Community and has an 80 seat Theatre and many creative studios including sound isolation rooms and a dance studio dedicated to students majoring in (Art, Dance, Music, Theatre/Musical Theatre and Mass Communication).
