UHD’s main campus is located on the northern edge of Houston’s business district. The University’s historic One Main Building offers scenic views of the city’s central business district and is located on the banks of Buffalo Bayou where the city’s founders ﬁrst landed in search of new opportunities. Today, Houston continues offering people new paths to success. The University’s central location means students can easily access the city’s art, cultural, and recreational resources. UHD faculty and students contribute to the community through service and research projects, art and theater productions and on-campus guest lectures.

The campus and living in Houston International students often tell us downtown Houston reminds them of the big cities in their own countries. UHD’s popular gathering spot – the South Deck – has a stunning view of the historic downtown buildings and the urban landscape. Within a few blocks are dozens of restaurants, clubs, green spaces and trails. UHD’s campus consists of three major buildings connected by sidewalks and trails. While there is no on-campus residential living, UHD has a partnership – including discounts – with its colleague, the University of Houston, only a few miles away. Houston also boasts many affordable apartments in and around the downtown area. UHD’s English Language Institute (ELI), which offers classes to improve English-speaking skills, also lists current apartments for rent. Its ELI Student Handbook offers practical advice for students from around the world and can be found online at this address: http://www.uhd.edu/prospective/ continuinged/eli/abouteli.html
Student organizations UHD has more than 50 service, professional, social and cultural student organizations, including the International Student Organization. Student organizations offer opportunities to network with professionals, meet other students, learn about other cultures and become engaged in University and community life. The International Student Organization strives to be creative in its campus events and community projects. The group has raised money for AIDS research, planned downtown street carnivals and organized activities that create a true international community at UHD.
Affordable education UHD offers one of the most affordable college educations in the United States. Check UHD’s website for current tuition-and-fee rates. Students have many opportunities to reduce these costs, including: • International students pursuing STEM careers (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) may apply to UHD’s Scholars Academy. Acceptance means students are eligible for in-state tuition, drastically reducing college costs. • International students enrolled in IJAP (International Joint Admissions Partnership) are eligible to receive a one-time $1,000 tuition discount for maintaining a minimum 3.0 grade point average during the ﬁrst two years of associate degree work.
Work your way to a better college deal Most UHD students – international and domestic – work while they earn their degrees. UHD Career Services can help you ﬁnd a good job on campus, one with ﬂexible hours. Whether you work in a science laboratory, Admissions or Testing Services, you will ﬁnd UHD staff and fellow students to be excellent and cordial co-workers and the experience will provide many opportunities to expand and improve your English skills.
Study-abroad program opens door to future exchanges. Hua “Jack” Gu from Huizhou University in Guangdong, China, helped launch a new student exchange program at UHD during the 2009-2010 school year, and he says the experience helped him become more independent and improved his English language skills. Gu enjoyed working in UHD’s Testing Services Department where he answered telephones, administered tests and talked to students – all tasks that helped develop his English-speaking skills. “It was crucial, vital,” he said. He lived in a nearby off-campus residence hall and rode the bus and light rail to campus. He taught himself to cook, and he used some of the money he earned to visit places across the United States. “I think I’m lucky,” Gu said. He finished his exchange year at UHD with a 3.88 grade-point average. UHD’s exchange program with Gu’s home university is relatively new and is still being developed. It is designed to provide two-way student exchanges and to promote international understanding. UHD also hopes to develop additional international exchange agreements to bring international students to campus.

Enjoy cosmopolitan Houston For some international students, Texas and Houston evoke images of cowboys, cattle and oil wells with tumbleweeds blowing down Main Street. “That’s what I thought…well, the cattle and cowboys part,” said Darine Ali, a recent graduate of UHD’s College of Business. “Houston, though, is an international city with modern architecture, museums, theater, trafﬁc jams, concerts, night clubs and everything you’d expect to ﬁnd in a big city.” Ali came to UHD as a freshman from Ethiopia and today she is a successful businesswoman in Houston’s upscale Galleria business district. Her story is just one example of how international students have succeeded at UHD.
When she ﬁrst arrived at UHD, she obtained part-time employment in UHD’s International Admissions Ofﬁce, where she worked until she graduated. Ali majored in International Business and earned a minor in Finance at UHD’s AACSB-International accredited College of Business. She served as president of UHD’s International Student Organization her senior year. Ali said her work with the student organization has resulted in lifelong international friendships. UHD provides the academic and extracurricular resources to help international students feel at home and to accomplish their goals, she said. Ali said she eventually plans to return to Ethiopia and open a shoe and leather tannery. She is developing a joint venture now to accomplish that goal.

Destination Houston More than four million people call the Houston region home. It is the largest city in Texas and the fourth largest in the United States. Located just an hour from Galveston on the Gulf of Mexico, Houston is lucky to have four seasons – but relatively mild winters. People here love the outdoors and share miles of hiking, biking and running trails and a direct link to water sports just down the highway. The Port of Houston is the nation’s leader in international commerce and the 10th largest port in the world. Houston is a hub for the energy and medical industries and home to the Texas Medical Center, with nearly 50 private and public health organizations, including several academic and research institutions. Many UHD students continue graduate work at the nearby University of Texas (UT) Medical Branch or UT.
Transportation Two major airports serve the Houston region: George Bush Intercontinental Airport (north) and William P. Hobby Airport (southwest). The Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (Metro) runs the Airport Direct service to Intercontinental. Metro also operates regional bus service and a seven-mile light rail line, which starts in the north at UHD’s front door and runs through the heart of downtown Houston, connecting the campus to the downtown business district, theaters, 18 museums – including the Museum of Fine Arts Houston – the Houston Zoo, the Texas Medical Center and ultimately Reliant Park, home of the Houston Texans professional football team. UHD offers its own free shuttle bus service between the three main buildings on campus: One Main, the Shea Street Building (home to the College of Business) and the Commerce Street Building.
Sports, entertainment and cultural events Interested in seeing a Shakespearean play? How about a symphony performance, or a rock concert? Houston has them all. In fact, UHD has its own venues, too – the O’Kane Gallery and the O’Kane Theatre that operate year-round. Houston’s annual International Festival focuses on a different country’s culture for two weeks every spring, ﬁlling the downtown streets with music, food, dance and cultural events. Professional sports fans love Houston. Football fans love the Texans; the Houston Astros play baseball in downtown’s Minute Maid Park (also home to UHD commencement ceremonies in December and May); the Houston Rockets play basketball and the Houston Aeros play hockey in downtown’s Toyota Center; and the Houston Dynamo team plays soccer at Robertson Stadium on the University of Houston campus. UHD students who enjoy participating more than viewing can take advantage of the Sports & Fitness gymnasium and workout center in addition to several intramural and club sports competitive teams.
