Message from UHD President: Give to Gators Update
Dear UHD Community,
As you are keenly aware, our students have the remarkable strength of character that drives them to complete their degrees while balancing family, work and other responsibilities. They are absolutely committed to earning degrees to create a better future for themselves and their families.
I speak less often about the comparable determination of our remarkable faculty and staff, but I see it as well. It is evident in those of you who go the extra mile to help students navigate their education at UHD. You are a source of guidance and encouragement that is a hallmark of student success.

The University of Houston-Downtown (UHD)—the second largest university in Houston—has served the educational needs of the nation’s fourth-largest city since 1974.
As one of four distinct public universities in the University of Houston System, UHD is a comprehensive four-year university led by Dr. Juan Sánchez Muñoz. Annually, UHD educates more than 14,000 students; boasts over 50,000 alumni and offers 44 bachelor’s and eight master’s degree programs within five colleges (Marilyn Davies College of Business; Humanities & Social Sciences; Public Service, Sciences & Technology; and University College). In 2018, UHD grew its First Time in College student population by 11 percent and transfer students by 14 percent.
UHD has the most affordable tuition among four-year universities in Houston. It also is ranked among 15 U.S. universities with lowest net price to students (according to the U.S. Department of Education). The University is noted nationally as both a Hispanic-Serving Institution and a Minority-Serving Institution. For more on the University of Houston-Downtown, visit www.uhd.edu.
