From University of Houston - Downtown

The University of Houston-Downtown is a comprehensive four-year university offering bachelor's and master's degree programs aimed at career preparation.

From the day our doors opened more than 40 years ago, UHD has expanded to serve the educational needs of America’s fourth-largest city.

We’re located right in the heart of Downtown Houston, one of the nation’s most culturally diverse metropolitan areas. So naturally, we’ve created an environment that welcomes and embraces students from all backgrounds.

With a 20-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio, we provide a unique hands-on learning environment for each student. They can choose from face-to-face instruction downtown or on our satellite locations, degrees and classes offered completely online and even a combination of the two.

Best of all, we offer everything for one of the lowest tuition rates among state colleges and universities.

We thought you’d like that. And we think you’ll love UHD.
