Student Handbook 2017 - 2018

Greetings from Student Affairs!

The University of Houston-Victoria (UHV) is an engaging learning environment that welcomes students from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Student Affairs is a critical part of student life at UHV: from Jaguar Hourney to cultural experiences, we exist to encourage and support students at every step of their college journey.

In Student Affairs, we provide support systems to help students resolve issues that might interfere with their educational goals, as well as programs designed to support a healthy and balanced lifestyle. We offer entertaining activities, volunteer opportunities, student organizations, recrational sports, and living/learning communities. We also expect our students to make a positive connection to the university, be responsible to self and community, and become lifelong learners. Students can expect us to support their efforts to become active, confident, and involved members of the University community.

You have our personal pledge that we will do everything possible to make your educational experience at UHV personalized and rewarding. We welcome your partnership in building and supporting an environment where students are responsible and accountable, relationships are established and enhanced, and new ideas are welcomed!

Go Jaguars,
