University of Houston-Clear Lake

Houston, Texas

BUILT NEAR AND FOR NASA Johnson Space Center, University of Houston–Clear Lake (UHCL) is a growing four-year institution, now in its forty-seventh year. In addition to engineers, scientists and astronauts, its 75,000-plus alumni include CEOs, civic leaders, humanitarians, educators, environmentalists, artists, and authors.

UHCL includes four colleges: business, education, human sciences and humanities, and science and engineering. The university offers three doctoral programs and more than ninety bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, including a bachelor’s in mechanical engineering, a master’s in clinical mental health counseling, and bachelor’s and master’s degrees in occupational safety and health. In 2021, the College of Human Sciences and Humanities expanded its degree programs to include a Bachelor of Arts in Serious Games and Simulations.

In 2019, UHCL opened its first traditional residence hall to complement privately operated, on-campus apartments. The hall is adjacent to two new state-of-the-art facilities: the STEM and Classroom Building and the Recreation and Wellness Center. The same year, a new health sciences and classroom building opened at UHCL at Pearland. UHCL’s healthcare administration program operates from UHCL’s Texas Medical Center location.

Students explore a diverse cultural scene and varied social opportunities through approximately one hundred campus organizations, including honor societies, leadership groups, and social clubs. Nearby parks and waterways offer hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, and other outdoor recreation.
