Hurricane Preparedness

How do Coogs Stay Informed?


The University of Houston (UH) is vulnerable to impacts from tropical storms and hurricanes. This Hurricane Response Guide provides guidelines and establishes protocols for an organized response to a hurricane. It addresses pre-storm preparation and post storm recovery as well as management of the campus during a storm. The timing and implementation of any or all steps 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
