THE UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON–Victoria (UHV) has offered quality higher education at a great value since 1973. UHV students choose from more than fifty academic programs with a wide range of concentrations in face-to-face and online classes in the colleges of business, education, and health professions, liberal arts and social sciences, and natural and applied science.

UHV’s main campus in Victoria is two hours from Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and Corpus Christi. Tuition rates are among the lowest in Texas, and students benefit from customized financial aid.

In 2021, UHV opened a new science, technology, engineering, and mathematics building and UHV Northwest, an off-campus center to house athletics, the kinesiology program, classrooms, and regional business initiatives. Additionally, the university recently began construction of a health and wellness center to open in 2025.
