  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.30 Average Rating
UHV is a great college pretty much for anyone because it is low cost, has flexible schedules, and professors who will do anything to help you. The dorms were okay, but this past year they really improved and their cafeteria has really great food. Lastly, UHV is also a smaller school so the financial aid office is easier to reach, there's more one-on-one time with professors and they're alot of opportunities to start your own club or organization.
Devin from Victoria, TX
As with any university, you have good professors and those who are less than stellar. My classes are all online and sometimes the selection of online classes is limited. However, UHV is generally a really good school.
Tammy from Roanoke, TX
I love it here the school is wonderful the teacher works with you when you feel that your grades aren't going the way you want it to be.The other students help you out as well and the school makes sure that you connect with others they want to make you as comfortable as possible.
Kettley from Victoria, TX
UH-V is an excellent school for students who are determined to continue their education. The school is located in Victoria, Texas a small town with a moderate city population. UH-V does have three other locations where classes are offered including Sugar Land, Cinco Ranch and Katy- HCC. The school offers various programs such as Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Education & Human Development and lastly Nursing. The professors and staff are very kind and demonstrate that they care for their students.
Esther Bazaldua
I would rate the University of Houston- Victoria as a 7 because the city of Victoria is not as grand as well as many adventurous sites to explore; however, the University itself is currently growing rapidly in terms of population. I enjoy the more intimate student to teacher relationships. There are no more than 40 in a classroom, allowing the students to receive more attention when needed.
Isabella from San Juan, TX
uhv is an awesome experience with alot of great people. needs a little improvement in some areas like athletic department. uv also needs a more broad school schedule.
