Located on the north side of Houston’s central business district, UHD encourages students to complete internships at nearby Fortune 500 corporations. The city’s light rail delivers students to the UHD front door; classes also are available at suburban locations and online.

UHD graduates excel in fields ranging from medicine and business to science and the humanities.

UHD is recognized nationally for its community engagement programs that link classroom academics with opportunities to serve people and agencies in the greater Houston area.
