​​KATY – The University of Houston System has completed the purchase of 46 acres for a new campus in Katy that will offer UH classes and programs of the university's Victoria affiliate.

The land, at the northeast corner of I-10 and the Grand Pkwy., was purchased from Parkside Capital.

Parkside Capital will develop the infrastructure, such as streets, lighting and landscaping, for the newly branded University Center on 125 acres, Parkside Capital CEO John S. Moody said.

The UH System plans to break ground on an 80,000-sf building at University Center in August and open it in fall 2019.

The campus will initially accommodate 2,000 students, but it could eventually serve up to 10,000 students in additional buildings.

UH and UH-Victoria currently offer classes at separate leased locations in the area. Their former Cinco Ranch campus is being sold.

The new campus is being funded by $46.8 million in construction bonds approved by the state legislature.
