University of Houston-Victoria




Dining at UHV

We view the dining program from not only a nutritional standpoint but also an important social aspect of a student’s growth. By offering so many options it encourages your student to explore not only new cuisines but to also meet new people and make new friends. Dining on campus allows your student to take part in the socializing that goes on during meals, allowing them many opportunities to interact outside the classroom.

Jaguar Hall provides a variety of items to fit any taste bud, including a grill, comfort line, deli, salad and soup bar, pizza station and international line.


July 1, 2017 the University of Houston System entered into a partnership with Chartwells Higher Education resulting in a strategic transformation of its dining services. The move promises to strongly appeal to current and prospective students, alumni, visitors, faculty and staff.

At UHV they will be partnering with the University in preparation for the new Student Center & Learning Commons opening fall 2018 that will include a coffee shop, full service grill and regional Mexican food chain.
