On behalf of the entire Department of Residence Life staff, welcome to the University of Houston-Victoria!
The Department of Residence Life staff is committed to your development, providing excellent customer service, and providing each resident with the necessary tools to be successful in an ever changing and diverse society. As we embark on a new year, I challenge each resident to play an active role in their community through participation in campus and housing programs and activities.
National research shows that students who live on campus perform better academically and graduate earlier than their off campus counterparts, so it is up to each student to take full advantage of this amazing opportunity. Living on campus will provide you with many new freedoms and personal choices, an experience in which you will meet student from across the country and around the globe, develop life-long friendships, and establish a connection to our diverse campus life.
Living in campus housing, you will find that we are “more than just a place to live!” We provide facilities, programs, and services that will assist you in achieving your academic goals. Programs are sponsored by our Resident Assistants, Residence Hall Association, and student leaders. I encourage you to get involved in your community, participate in the various residential programs and become involved in your hall council or RHA to make a difference in your living community!
If I can assist you in any way please let me know. Again, on behalf of the Department of Residence Life; welcome to the University of Houston-Victoria family. My staff and I look forward to assisting you throughout your journey as a Jaguar! Go Jags!
