Hughes-Trigg Student Center 2.0
World changers shaped for a lifetime in the heart of the student
“Our vision for Hughes-Trigg is an exciting go-to spot with a lot of student life. It should be a fun hub where people are studying, working on group projects or meeting friends.” — Kate Jensen ’19
Take a virtual tour of the newly renovated SMU Hughes-Trigg Student Center!
The excitement is building in the SMU Hughes-Trigg Student Center. Check out the new Varsity hangout and dining space at SMU!
In 2019, the 32-year-old building underwent renovations and has been refreshed and reimagined as a modern, inviting gathering space where students come together to socialize, study and participate in the full slate of campus opportunities that nurture a strong sense of community. The project is now complete, and Hughes-Trigg is once again the Hub on the Hilltop.
There are a handful of spaces still available to name within SMU’s Hughes-Trigg Student Center. Learn more about these unique naming opportunities by contacting Brandon Starr at 214-768-7726 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
