Lone Star Hall is a dormitory on the north-side of campus along Bearkat Boulevard. It opened for residency in August 2011.

The $18 Million facility was first discussed in the 2008 Campus Master Plan as one of two proposed residence halls [1]. It will house 298 students of all classifications (freshmen and above).

The Residence Life administration offices are located on the ground floor of the building, having moved from elsewhere from campus.

A December 2010 Houstonian article revealed the name "Lone Star Hall" had been decided by students participating in a campus-wide online vote (in November) that included four prospective names [2], a process similar to the naming of Raven Village.
