Herrington Patriot Center (HPC)
The Herrington Patriot Center (HPC) is named for the family of Louise H. Ornelas, who has been an avid supporter of UT Tyler for many years. In addition to the Jean Lancaster Academic Wing, this center includes the Maytee Fisch Convocation Center (gymnasium/convocation area with basketball and volleyball courts seating over 2,000), the Jim and Bonna Bess Vaughn Recreation and Therapy Pool (heated pool and spa with sun deck), the Meadows Student Lounge and a fitness center.
UT Tyler faculty, staff and registered student organizations can request the HPC Gym, PHE Gym, intramural field, or other HPC-managed location using Astra. Quick video tutorials for student organizations are available if needed.
External clientele are welcome to request this venue for conferences, large banquets, graduations, galas, etc. Please use the online event request form found here.
