Sutton Hall is a building on the University of Texas at Austin campus, serving as one of the three buildings supporting the School of Architecture, the others being Battle Hall and Goldsmith Hall. It was designed by Cass Gilbert, who also designed Battle Hall, the architecture library on the same campus. Originally, Sutton Hall housed the College of Engineering, of which the department of architecture was originally part.

In 1927, the University separated the Department of Psychology out of the Department of Philosophy, and moved Psychology out of Garrison Hall and onto the 3rd floor of Sutton Hall, where it would share space with the Department of Educational Psychology for the next 25 years.[1]

Today, Sutton Hall houses architecture studios, labs, and offices, including graduate admissions for the school.
