Texas Southern University is a state supported institution and one of two comprehensive Black institutions of higher learning in the world. It was established by the Texas Legislature in 1947. This authorized the University to offer programs in a number of areas, including pharmacy, dentistry, arts and sciences, jounalism, education, literature, law, medicine and other professional courses. To construct a new University, the State of Texas acquired the physical plant of the Houston College for Negros and the four-year institution was officially changed to Texas Southern University.

Located near the heart of downtown Houston, the University has grown from one permanent building and several temporary structures in 1947 to 44 buildings on a campus that sits on 145 acres.

Campus tours are available through the admissions office.
