Homecoming 2020

Homecoming at the University of Houston is a tradition dating back to 1946. As student enrollment surged following World War II, Homecoming arose as one of many traditions that enlivened the campus. Around this time the football team joined the Lone Star Conference, the marching band was organized, the first bonfire was held, and Frontier Fiesta returned. As UH continues to move forward, the homecoming court, football game, and other festivities still welcome alumni back each fall. While traditions may have changed over the years, the Cougar spirit marches on.

The University of Houston proudly presents Homecoming 2020! Homecoming is more than a football game-- it is a week celebrating the University of Houston, uniting students and organizations and showcasing Cougar Pride and Cougar Spirit during one of the oldest traditions on campus! For each day of Homecoming, there are different events for students, alumni and the UH community. Mark your calendars this year for Homecoming 2020, and celebrate Homecoming with us November 9th – November 14th, 2020!

The University of Houston has so much to offer from its great diversity to its multitude of innovation and creativity fostered at our institution. We Cougars are immensely proud of all past accomplishments and look forward to future endeavors with a renewed spirit and Tier-One aspirations. It’s a great time to be a Cougar, whether you’re an alum, a student, faculty, staff or a much-loved friend of the University of Houston. Come one, come all! Come back to campus for Homecoming to reconnect to the good old days, celebrate everything that’s new and get excited about the bright future we have to look forward to. There’s something fun for everyone, and it’s all right here in your ”home-sweet-Cougar-home“!

Houston vs Memphis

The Game

The homecoming football game serves as a rallying point for alumni and students alike to come together for one of the biggest things they celebrate no matter what—our Houston Cougar football team. Homecoming games have been among the most memorable in UH history, with many of them featuring startling upsets against favored opponents and record-setting offense. After calling Robertson Stadium, the Astrodome and other venues home, the team will mark another spirit-filled homecoming in the TDECU Stadium on Saturday, November 16, 2019, against Memphis.
