The staff at university of Houston clear lake are amazing. They are willing to put In the work to help you be successful. University of Houston clear lake’s staff members truly love their job and put in the time to make the university great. The thing I love most about the university is that it feels like home. University of Houston clear lake is a smaller university which means classes are smaller and more intimate. Something the university can do to improve is prove more classes per subject. Sometimes it becomes difficult to regrister for a class because they fill up so quickly. Overall the university is amazing!

Great school! Safe and beautiful suburban campus! Quality of education is equal to or better than the main campus (University of Houston). This school is a gem. Great teachers that truly focus on each students success. Wide variety of majors. High level of global diversity. Just a great experience.
I used to go to Texas women's university. When I had to move back to Houston, my parents suggested attending UHCL because they both got their masters degree from UHCL. I love the campus, it's so beautiful. the staff is great and very helpful. The food they serve is delicious and fresh. The restrooms are always clean! everything is clean! Classes are small and I love it!
