Butler is located on the south part of central campus adjacent to the park-like Concho Mall area which is a popular spot for residents to relax or throw a football when the weather is nice. Residents also have the opportunity to spend more time outdoors at nearby Sewell Park. The hall is a traditional, coed facility with one section of the hall dedicated to students within the Honors Program at Texas State.
A portion of Butler Hall is dedicated to the University Honors Learning Community. Residents accepted into the University Honors program are encouraged to apply for this Learning Community. These residents are assigned to the same section of Butler Hall and benefit from frequent study groups and special community events.
History of Butler

For seventeen years, Mary Butler exclusively taught the classes offered by the music program and directed an operta which brought together the music and speech departments.
