The University of Houston is relatively good for the amount of money you have to pay. While the facilities aren't particularly nice and a lot of things tend to be broken, the students are friendly and the food is good. I wouldn't recommend walking alone at night though, as we're not in the safest part of Houston and the campus is rather lacking in lighting in certain places. But UH is cheaper than a private college and will get you the degrees that you need.
I had a few good teachers at UH in their Art program and one in their English program, but the majority of the instructors I had, despite their qualifications, were not very good teachers. Many of the instructors were inexperienced graduate students with little experience teaching, which made completing assignments difficult and caused many of the classes to seem shallow, with no room for a deeper discussion of the subject matter. On the other side were professors who, while experienced, gave lectures that lacked any basis in the material we were being tested on, making most lectures completely useless as students would have to teach themselves everything on their own time anyway. Lastly, the facilities are very outdated, with many professors and departments not even having offices or buildings, and the buildings that are available are poor in quality. There are some teachers at UH that are truly passionate, but they seem few and far between and hindered by the facility, and other faculty at the school. Hopefully UH starts emphasizing quality teaching of students and creating a better environment for them to learn.
I am constantly amazed at what the University of Houston (UH) has to offer.
When I first arrived on campus, I realized how expansive it was. There were multiple buildings in every corner. Even today, I still use a map to maneuver myself around the campus, but it is not difficult to find any desired place because UH provides an app called "UH Go" that provides students with various functions, including a special UH map to access any UH facility located on campus.
However, I will note that most faculty members, excluding professors, tend to be uncaring and lack concern. For example, several times, I have called the UH main phone number for a multitude of concerns, such as to ask about transfer credits, a refund for classes I withdrew, confusions about buying a parking pass, or appointments with a counselor, and oftentimes, the person on the phone speaks in a monotone voice or with an attitude and hangs up quickly. Testing facilities at UH could also improve in similar terms. But still, they do provide the necessary information asked by the student, and I also take into consideration that the workers may not like their job or have other important things to attend to.
But overall, I really enjoy my time on campus. There are hundreds of fun events at UH hosted both during the day and at night, consisting of food trucks, mini shops, free giveaways, arts and crafts, and celebratory parties. There is also a HUGE number of extracurricular activities, such as intramural sports and club organizations that accept all genders, races, and ethnicities. These organizations are what make up the bulk of my amazing UH experience! Classes and lectures tend to be boring in general, so I definitely encourage exploring the vast amount of opportunities offered on campus, as these are only a small portion of the extensive network offered at UH!
The University of Houston is inclusive, fun, and of course highly educational. There is always something to do on campus, and my teachers are industry professionals. This is my first time attending a university on campus, as previously I had only taken classes online. Therefore I am amazed at how great the college experience can be.

study more and make it to UT without fail
Classmates are classmates, everyone varies but most are there to eagerly learn their interests.
The University of Houston is a stellar academic Tier One research university, with a diverse student body and a great Communication Sciences and Disorders program, which is my major.
The remodelled gym is the only thing that makes me feel, my tuition is being used somewhere important.
UH is a nice campus in the middle of poor neighboroods. Yet with that in mind, there are so many things to do or see near or on campus. It is close to a bunch of attractions yet can still maintain the identity of a school in a college town.
If I had to narrow it down to just one thing, I'd have to say parking. There never seems to be enough parking, although the school is trying to fix that.
Someone who loves diversity or who's looking to experience what diversity is like
The University of Houston is located in the greater Houston area therefore creating an enormous diverse campus. The school has a huge variety of different student organizations including everything from different cultures to different majors to different extracurricular interests. Any type of person would find a place for them on this campus whether its based on major or personal interest.
I wish I had known that the tuition will go up almost every semester.The classes are extremely expensive. I am taking 5 classes and do not have time for work. The financial aid that I have been getting had dropped, now it is just $5500 a year! This fall semester cost me almost $4000, not counting books. I really wish I could get a scholarship, it will be really helpful in my financial situation. I think that students must concentrade on their studyings, instead of being stressed up on thinking where to get money for their next semester tuition.
i brag about how my school is more real than theirs since its next to the ghetto
University of Houston is best known for many things for example they have one of the best business programs in the city as well as state. The school is also known for being a tier one university and also for being an environmental school. University of Houston is very friendly and a good campus to go to since it is near downtown.
One thing that I would like to change is making the faculty and staff of the University more spirited. Students are not enough to carry the spirit. Also, faculty and staff need to be reminded that they are here for the students. The reason they are employeed is because of the students, and therefore they should try and take care of them best they can.
University of Houston doesn't get near the recognition that it deserves. It's an older campus, so we don't have the nice fancy buildings that UT and A&M have, and we are often considered the odd stepchild. The neighborhood that the university is built in isn't the best either, known for its high amount of crime allows us to be titled the "ghetto" schools. But honestly the schools taking a lot of money out of its pocket to make the campus look nicer, by building nicer buildings. And we have one of the most diverse, intelligent campuses in Texas, most of which are Indian and Asian students from the area. We are a tier one research university and we are rated as one of the most difficult skills to get A's in. We never get the credit we deserve.
Very knowledgeable and helpful
Not too sure, I have not really looked around much.
There is no specific stereotype at UH because there is so much diversity.
Like I said before, since University of Houston is located in an urban area, there is often a stereotype that most of our students are "ghetto" and "uneducated." This could not be further from the truth!
I decided to attend University of Houston, because I knew I wanted a university located in a major city, but since I'm originally from the Dallas area, I wanted it to be away from home. So I decided "Why not Houston!?" Then I went online and researched it a bit, and saw that they would accept all my AP credits, and had a lot of nice scholarships. So I applied, and BAM!, here I am.
I am a commuter, but from what I've heard, the dorms are mostly nice. There is a fairly new freshman facility, and they are planning to build more dorm facilities in the near future.
