The Anthony and Louise Viaer Alumni Hall, formerly the Administration Building, is a building on the campus of Huston-Tillotson University in Austin, Texas, United States.

The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as "Administration Building".[1]

The building was named after Anthony E. Viaer, an alumnus of the Class of 1958 who gave a one million United States dollar scholarship opportunity to university students.[2]

It is located at 1820 E. Eighth St. in Austin, Texas and was built in 1914. It includes Prairie School architecture.

It is a historic building of Huston-Tillotson University, the oldest historically Black college in the area. It was actually formed of bricks manufactured by students of the school.[3]:17

The building was first nominated for National Register listing in 1986, but was not then listed, due to owner objection.[3]:24 It was listed in 1993.[1]
