Distance Education

Responding to the educational needs of the rapidly growing Houston area, the University of Houston makes credit course offerings available at locations away from the main campus and to enrolled students at home.

The University of Houston offers face-to-face and live interactive classes at three locations in the greater Houston area.

  • UH Northwest Campus (20515 SH 249, Houston, Texas), serves the northwest Houston area,
  • UH Sugar Land (14000 University Boulevard, Sugar Land), serves Fort Bend county and southwest Houston, and
  • UH System at Cinco Ranch (4242 S. Mason Road, Katy) serves the west Houston area.

Credit courses offered at these sites include junior, senior, and graduate level courses from selected degree programs. New courses are added each semester, and proposed courses undergo the same rigorous design and review as those offered on the main campus.

Credit courses are taught by University of Houston faculty members and have the same prerequisites, content, and requirements as on the main campus.

The off-site facilities currently offer a broad range of courses that apply to undergraduate and graduate degrees including collaboratively delivered programs in cooperation with partner universities.

The UH System centers provide classrooms, conference rooms, computer labs, distance learning classrooms, library facilities, and administrative offices.

The new UH Northwest Campus currently has distance learning classrooms, student work/study rooms and administrative offices. Library access is available through the Lone Star College - University Park library which is located in the building adjacent to the UH facility.

UH Distance Education coordinates the delivery of courses off-campus and online.
