Discover All UHCL Has to Offer

Now that you’ve joined the family of Hawks at University of Houston-Clear Lake, we want you to continue developing, growing and having enriching, dynamic experiences. During UHCL’s Week of Welcome you’ll have an amazing set of opportunities to learn more about the journey you’re beginning. Events during your first week include the Welcome Back Bash and Hawk Launch. But it doesn’t stop after the first week. March brings Midterms Madness, and Family Weekend in conjunction with Chili Cook-Off. Finals Freebies will help you get through end-of-the-year exams.

Get ready to begin your transition into college life and take off on your flight as a Hawk.
