Welch Hall
General information
Town or city Austin, Texas
Country United States

The Robert A. Welch Hall (abbreviated WEL) is a building located on the University of Texas at Austin campus.[1]


Before Welch Hall was constructed, the space was designated for Brackenridge Dormitory (built in 1933 and not to be confused with the second dormitory of the same name).[2]

In October 1996, the building caught fire from a research project. In response, the university committed $30.2 million to renovate the hall and updated safety equipment, along with retrofit of equipment to meet new safety standards.[3]
