The University of Houston-Victoria Counseling Center (UCC) offers a broad range of psychological services to all currently enrolled UHV students.  The Center works to empower college students to become capable and competent leaders and professionals at work, at home, and in academia, assuming full responsibility for their own well-being while developing those positive traits that will improve quality of life and relationships for themselves and those around them.  Counseling Center services are thus designed to support, encourage, educate, assist, and empower all scholars in a university setting. The Center supports students as they adjust to the challenges and transitions of university life and helps faculty and staff function more effectively in their work with UHV students.  Through our endeavors, we both support and define the educational mission of the University of Houston-Victoria and facilitate mutual respect and understanding among people of diverse backgrounds by promoting health and wellness as one component enhancing student success and enrollment management.

Currently enrolled UHV students in Victoria and at the University of Houston System at Sugar Land (UHSSL) and University of Houston System Cinco Ranch(UHSCR) can use counseling center services.  The Director of Counseling is available for referrals on each of these campuses.
