From University of Houston - Victoria

Are you looking for an accessible, affordable college experience? Do you want to be more than just a number? The University of Houston-Victoria is the place for you. As one of only four standalone institutions of higher education within the University of Houston System, UHV is rurally located in Victoria, Texas and is only 2 hours away from big cities such as Houston and San Antonio.

UHV has transformed itself into a comprehensive, residential campus that continues to grow on a yearly basis. We have added a University Commons, a fourth dorm, and in the Spring of 2021, we will be opening a brand new, state-of-the-art STEM building.

With so much growth, UHV is one of the most affordable public universities. Combining the financial aid opportunities and low tuition and fee rates, you won't find a better value for a bachelor's – or master's – degree anywhere. We look forward to connecting with you soon and sharing everything #JAXNATION has to offer.
