Housing

On-campus Housing

Information about on-campus housing is available at http://www.uh.edu/housing/ or by contacting Residential Life and Housing (RLH) at 713-743-6000.

One of the newest housing options on campus is the Calhoun Lofts, which offer one-bedroom, loft-style units for graduate and professional students and upperclassmen.

You can view a full-color brochure of the many on-campus housing options as well as current pricing lists here.

Apartments

If you are interested in living within a close proximity of the College, we suggest finding an apartment close to the UH main campus. You will spend your first three professional years at the UH main campus. The fourth year will be fully experiential and some learning-sites may be at the Texas Medical Center (TMC).

The TMC is a few minutes away from the UH main campus-providing you with the best of both worlds. However, apartments around the TMC are more costly, due to their proximity to the medical center.

If you need a more economical location, you might consider areas outside the 610 Loop/Inner Loop area (aka "Outside the Loop" or "Beltway 8" areas), such as Pearland, Sugar Land or Meyerland. Please be aware that although housing typically costs less than apartments near the Medical Center area, you will experience longer commuting times (anywhere from 25-45 minutes or longer based on traffic/weather conditions and specific location).

If you have any questions or suggestions for other students, please contact one of the Orientation Contacts listed on the Orientation main page.

Transportation & Mobility

METRO

The Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County (METRO) operates public transportation services – including Local bus and Park & Ride, Light Rail, and High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes – within Houston and portions of the surrounding Greater Houston area. These services include light rail stops on or immediately adjacent to the UH main campus as well as bus routes that serve the UH main campus and the Texas Medical Center. 

UH offers a discounted fare program called COAST (Coogs on Alternative AND Sustainable Transportation) for college students. This recently expanded program has become a popular choice for getting to and from campus. Please note that both MetroRail (Purple Line) and Metro-bus, have pick-up/drop-off locations just outside our new Pharmacy Building. For general information about public transportation services, visit the METRO Website.

Toll Roads/Managed Lanes

Several "pay-for-use" toll roads and managed lanes, which typically offer time savings for commuters traveling from the outskirts of Houston, are in operation across the Greater Houston area. Most toll roads and the Katy Managed Lanes are operated by the Harris County Toll Road Authority, which also offers an EZ Tag option for greater convenience.
