About University of Houston-Victoria
The University of Houston-Victoria is located in Victoria, Texas, the commerce and entertainment center of the Texas Coastal Bend region. Pioneer charm and high-tech industry mingle in the city of 62,000 inhabitants near the Gulf of Mexico on a popular coastal route between Houston and Mexico. Victoria is within a two-hour drive from Houston, Austin, Corpus Christi and San Antonio. As the third-oldest chartered city in Texas, Victoria has many beautiful, historic Victorian structures and homes. Additionally, Victoria's economy has grown to become the regional hub for neighboring businesses and industries.
The University of Houston-Victoria shares a campus with the Victoria College. The UHV campus includes the University Center, completed in spring 2000, which contains classrooms, offices, and media and computer labs, and University West, which houses classrooms and faculty and administrative offices. In 2004, a 14,000-square-foot expansion to the University West building was completed. The Jaguar Hall and Jaguar Court residence halls for underclassmen are a short, 10-minute walk to the main campus.
In the 1960s, the citizens of the Victoria area rea...lized that greater opportunities were needed in higher education. No institution within a hundred-mile radius offered baccalaureate and master’s degrees. Many junior college students and graduates in the region wanted to continue studying beyond an associate degree, and a growing number of people who had bachelor’s degrees were anxious to pursue master’s degrees. To meet those needs, UHV opened in 1973.
UHV is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
