Old Hogg

Designed by French architect Paul Cret and completed in 1933, Hogg Memorial Auditorium was the first theater on campus and was part of the "Union Group" buildings, financed almost entirely by student and alumni efforts. The auditorium was named after James Stephen Hogg, the first native governor of Texas.

Hogg has served as a hub for various aspects of campus life since it opened its doors. In the 1950s, it was the main stage for UT’s drama department. Throughout time, it has been the venue of choice for lectures, debates and traveling plays.

Through the combined efforts of Student Government, the College of Fine Arts and the Division of Student Affairs, we're honored to present the Hogg to the campus community.
