Weekend U courses are held Saturdays on the UH campus. Classes are scheduled between 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., and are taught by the same qualified instructors that teach other UH courses.

Most classes meet face-to-face like any other traditional classes. Some courses are hybrid, which combine traditional classroom instruction with a significant amount of instruction delivered online.
