Changes to Your Forms and Documents

It is your responsibility to notify the Student Assistance Center if your information changes.

In the Event of an Evacuation


You are notified by phone/email. Report to SAC at the time specified by the phone/email notification. Bring your current UHCL ID and other items listed in the What to Bring section. You will be directed to an evacuation bus.

Be aware that notification time can vary greatly. Not only do hurricanes develop at different rates (sometimes in just hours), but the threat to our area must be assessed by weather and government officials.

What To Bring


  • Current UHCL ID
  • Passport, I-20/Immigration documents
  • Driver's license and important documents


  • Students are limited to 1 suitcase and 1 carry-on bag
  • Clothes and toiletries for 5-7 days
  • Pillow, blanket, towels and medications
  • Water and snacks for bus ride
  • Money-cash: You may have to purchase your own food and power outages may affect ATMs, credit card and check transactions.

At the Emergency Shelter

Expect very basic accommodations. You must abide by the emergency shelter's rules and UHCL's Student Code of Conduct. (See Student Rights and Responsibilities (pdf), reference: Student Life Policies Handbook.)
