More details

The University of Houston-Downtown provides life-changing educational access and opportunity to individuals living in one of the most diverse metropolitan areas in Texas. UHD is a federally designated Minority- and Hispanic- Serving Institution. Students, including many first-generation college students, enjoy working directly with dedicated faculty in a close-knit environment that provides superb academic- and student-support services. Access is broadened through a philosophy that keeps UHD's tuition and fee structure as affordable as possible; the university's charges for tuition and fees are often among the lowest of public universities in the state. UHD students also find that the university provides flexibility that fits their lifestyles because most students pursue degrees while working full or part time. Students take advantage of online classes, innovative uses of technology such as wireless Internet access, evening classes and classes offered at off-site locations as they pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees. They also find that UHD tailors study abroad programs and other international enrichment opportunities in ways that makes them realistic options for students who also work. UHD offers a wide variety of undergraduate degrees and a growing number of graduate degrees. Students benefit from the diverse array of internship possibilities that exist in the nation's fourth largest city. UHD's colleges and departments cultivate relationships with corporate and public entities to develop hands-on opportunities for students in the respective disciplines. Just minutes from campus, students have access to the largest medical center in the world, distinguished museum and arts centers, professional sports arenas and beautiful Gulf Coast beaches. Students are involved in community outreach projects, working at area schools and non-profit organizations. Intramural sports led by the campus "Edu-gator" mascot provides recreational opportunities and students also are active in student organizations and student-led activities. While UHD is best known for embracing diversity and providing access, alumni often speak about the high-quality curriculum they mastered and how UHD's rigorous standards and expectations helped prepare them for success in the workplace. UHD is a relatively young university and it is one of four separate universities in the University of Houston System. UHD is located on the northern edge of downtown Houston where three major freeways converge, and the city's light rail service stops at the front door. This makes reaching campus convenient from work or home. UHD is a non-residential campus.
