Houston Baptist University’s campus is close-knit and carefully designed to blend convenience with meaningful connection. Centered around a central mall, HBU’s grounds serve as a beautiful backdrop for our faculty, students, and guests, whether taking a quick walk to class, gathering for a shaded picnic study hour, or taking a mid-morning stroll.
The Hinton Center serves as a landmark for HBU’s campus and currently houses the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences and the Archie W. Dunham College of Business. Featuring both seating for large audiences (100+ persons) and mid-sized conference rooms, the Hinton Center offers flexible space to suit the needs of our students and staff. Also housed in the Hinton Center is HBU’s Graduate School and the university’s Human Resources department.
