UHV takes pride in the personal attention each student receives inside and outside the classroom. The university offers small class sizes, which allow for personal attention from professors. A frequent compliment from UHV alumni is how available and helpful professors are in answering questions.
The same level of personal service can be found across the university. Personal guides can walk new students through each step of the application, admissions, financial aid and registration processes. At UHV, students are always a name and never a number.
UHV is dedicated to preparing students for the career of their dreams. With community projects, simulations, internships and opportunities to study abroad, UHV provides students with real-world experiences.
Jaguar Suites is UHV’s newly constructed sophomore and upperclassmen residence hall. The 82,000-square-foot dormitory has 54 suites, a fitness center, swimming pool, computer labs and a large commons area. UHV’s two other residence halls are located right next door. Students can enjoy meals from Jaguar Hall Dining, which underwent a major expansion in 2013.
UHV students participate in many activities throughout the year, including intramural sports, movie nights and talent shows. Unique events like the annual Foam Party and Totally ’80s Skating also are popular draws.
Students who excel in the classroom can join a campus chapter of national and international honor societies. Several students also have taken the initiative to form their own student organizations.
Facilities and Resources
Located in the friendly community of Victoria, Texas, UHV has a safe, appealing 19-acre main campus with plenty of indoor and outdoor places to study or catch up with friends. The campus has ample parking, and a free shuttle bus transports students to the nearby residence halls.
UHV will break ground in fall 2013 on an Academic and Economic Development Building. Once it opens in 2014, the facility will house classrooms, academic support services, the School of Business Administration and the Small Business Development Center.
UHV also offers upper-level and graduate courses in Fort Bend County at two UH System teaching centers – UH Sugar Land and the UH System at Cinco Ranch – in addition to selected classes at the Lone Star College University Center at Montgomery in The Woodlands and the Houston Community College Katy campus.
