AUSTIN - Robert B. Rowling Hall, a $172 million, 458,000-sf building at the corner of Guadalupe St. and East Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., has been approved by the University of Texas Board of Regents.

Construction on Rowling Hall will begin in fall 2014 and should be completed by early 2017. The facility will house the McCombs school’s Texas MBA and masters of technology commercialization programs and double the space available for Texas Executive Education programs.

Rowling Hall has been partially funded through donations including $25 million from Robert and Terry Rowling, part of a $40 million gift from Jim and Miriam Mulva and $5 million from StarTex Power of Houston.

The board of regents also approved the Kay Bailey Hutchison Center for Energy, Law and Business, which will be supported by the McCombs school and the UT School of Law and combine three existing centers under one umbrella. The center is named after Hutchison, the former long-serving U.S. Senator from Texas.
