The student body at UH ranks top in the nation among Carnegie-designated Tier 1 public research universities for its ethnic diversity, with no majority race on campus. UH is also very international in character, with students from more than 140 nations. With more than five hundred student organizations and approximately 6,200 students living on campus, life at UH is vibrant and engaging.

UH received funding approval in 2019 from the Texas Legislature for its new College of Medicine, whose goal is to produce more primary care physicians to work in underserved rural and urban areas of Texas. UH also offers the nation’s first doctorate in Spanish-language creative writing and first graduate subsea engineering program. Its undergraduate entrepreneurship program consistently ranks among the top five in the nation, with intellectual property and health law among the top ten.

The university addresses society’s most pressing concerns through 29 research centers and is the lead institution in five nationally funded centers conducting research in energy, psychology, superconductivity, laser mapping, and homeland security. UH’s 74-acre Technology Bridge includes built-up space for large laboratories, pilot-scale facilities, and light manufacturing.
