Kent R. Hance Chapel at Texas Tech Officially Opened

A new facility at Texas Tech has been officially opened.

The opening of the Kent R. Hance Chapel was celebrated Wednesday, marking the completion of the project, which cost more than $3.5 million.

The project was executed through private funding from donors including David Arrington, the late Margaret Talkington, and Kent Hance, Texas Tech University System Chancellor and the chapel’s lead contributor.

The chapel is located just off of 17th Street and University Avenue, not far from the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center, and is a non-denominational chapel which can be used for a broad range of events.

“The new chapel is a wonderful addition to our university,” said Hance. “Not only is this going to be a special place for so many of our students, alumni, and friends to enjoy, it also serves as a beautiful cornerstone to the Texas Tech campus.”

The 6,879 square-foot chapel seats around 250 people, and features the Spanish Renaissance architectural style used by many of the buildings around the Texas Tech campus.
