Missing Student Notification

Section: Student Services Index: D-11
Subject: Missing Student Notification 


The University of Houston-Victoria takes student safety very seriously. The University has established a policy and procedure designed to identify and assist UHV students who reside in on-campus housing and who have been reported missing for more than 24 hours. This policy ensures our compliance with The Higher Education Opportunity Act (P.L. 110-315) of 2008.


The UHV missing student policy covers residential students who have been determined to have been missing for 24 hours. Residential students are students enrolled at the University of Houston- Victoria who reside in university-owned housing.


This policy does not preclude implementing these procedures in less than 24 hours if circumstances warrant a faster implementation.
