Hurricane Preparedness

The University of Houston-Victoria  is vulnerable to impacts from tropical storms and hurricanes. Pre-storm preparation and post storm recovery as well as management of the campus during a storm is critical. The timing and implementation of any or all Hurricane Preparation/Response and Continuity of Operations (COOP) may be altered based upon facts and circumstances surrounding any individual hurricane event. The primary objectives of the plan are as follows:

  • Ensure safety and protection of faculty, staff, students and visitors
  • Mitigate damage and protect university assets
  • Restore business and academic operations as quickly as possible

A copy of the UHV Hurricane Response Guide is available. Please contact the UHV Emergency Management Department for assistance.
