When you are a Hawk, you can spot a goal from a mile away and zero in on it.

Strong foundations are essential to your success as a student. Through learning how to navigate campus procedures, discovering helpful resources, practicing how to ask for help and advocate for yourself, seeking out new experiences to expand your learning, and finding a place on campus to call home, you can create and maintain a firm base from which to build your success both inside and outside of the classroom.

Housing and Dining

Ready for your own place, right on campus? University Forest Student Village offers one-, two-, and four-bedroom apartments, each with a full kitchen and free Internet (plus study lounges, tennis courts and pool). If you’re a freshman, consider living at Hawk’s Landing, which is a part of University Forest designated especially for first-year students. That's a great place to find your bearings if you're new, and they offer plenty of programming designed to enhance your academic and out-of-class experiences.

Campus Housing 

UHCL doesn't offer meal plans, but you’ll find plenty to eat on campus: Besides a rotation of food trucks with tacos, waffles, BBQ and more, the restaurants in our Patio Café serve all day long, from breakfast until after dinner.
