University of Houston TDECU Stadium


The new TDECU Stadium is a 40,000-seat collegiate football stadium constructed on the site of the original Robertson stadium.

TDECU Stadium features a silver, corrugated metal façade with Cougar Red highlights that reflects the aesthetic of other facilities on campus. It is oriented on the site to highlight the downtown Houston skyline, enhance campus pedestrian circulation and access, improve parking efficiency and enrich the traditional Cougar Walk procession. The stadium’s concourse wraps 360 degrees and offers uninterrupted views of the playing field. Large openings in the corners of the facility allow air flow throughout the seating bowl.

The stadium features club space, luxury suites and press boxes uniquely situated between the lower and upper seating bowls on the south sideline. The expansive club space is just 17 rows from the playing field, and the 26 exclusive suites are located directly above the club. The seating bowl features 34 loge boxes, open-air party suites and decks and other premium seating and service options throughout.

The 90’ wide by 45’ tall scoreboard structure behind the west end includes an LED display sponsorship signage opportunities. The playing field features a high-quality synthetic turf designed to facilitate multiple events. The 5,000 SF locker room will be partially visible to club area fans who will be able to watch the team head to and from the field.
