Welcome to the Powerhouse. More than 42,700 students attend the University of Houston (UH), known for its groundbreaking research, acclaimed faculty, and expertise in energy, health, and the arts.

UH’s location in Houston’s historic Third Ward neighborhood provides students close proximity to internship opportunities with Fortune 500 companies, law firms, and arts organizations. More than 4,000 companies worldwide are owned and/or led by UH alumni.

The 667-acre campus’s $800 million in new construction over the last nine years has included new student housing, research and classroom buildings, and athletic facilities. Recent additions include the state-of-the-art TDECU football stadium and the development of a biomedical district. More than 7,000 students live on campus in residence halls, apartments and townhouses.

Home to more than 300 degree programs, UH has the only space architecture graduate program and the nation’s first subsea engineering program. Reflecting the DNA of our city, UH’s undergraduate entrepreneurship program is consistently ranked one of the top three in the nation, and intellectual property and health law are among the top 10 law programs.

Innovation is more than a buzzword at UH; it drives both researchers and our students. The university oversees more than $150 million in annual research expenditures and has been recognized by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities for its work to create an innovative ecosystem. The UH Innovation Center offers office space and a wet lab for start-up companies founded by UH faculty or students.
