The Chancellor of Texas Tech University gifted this chapel to provide a place for worship, contemplation and celebrations of life. While designed in the Spanish Renaissance style of the historic sections of the campus, this 250-seat chapel exhibits inspiration from beyond that historic core, probing the original source material to introduce new elements to the campus vocabulary and avoid diminishing the significance of familiar campus precedents through replication. The espadaña like campanario (bell tower wall), the ermine patterning of the principal façade, and the curved articulation of the gabled parapet walls all are new to campus but appear in Spanish sources.

In keeping with renaissance principles, the chapel is simple in form and is regulated by classical ideals of mathematical proportion. Ornamentation is judiciously utilized to celebrate only the most important architectural features. Dean Vernooy of the TTU College of Architecture says, "The proportions and scale of the Hance Chapel settle into the eastern prospect of the campus in a way that attests to its timeless nature, as if it had been here all along and the University grew around it."
