Located in the heart of the city, the University reflects the diversity of the Greater Houston Metropolitan Area, and, through its academic programs, engages with the community to address the needs and advance the development of the region. UHD is an inclusive community dedicated to integrating teaching, service, and scholarly research to develop students' talents and prepare them for success in a dynamic global society. UHD draws students from throughout the Greater Houston area.

The University offers all students a specially tailored opportunity for quality higher education, as well as small classes. UHD employs over 1,100 faculty and staff.

Since opening its doors in 1974, UHD has grown in mission and service, and now offers baccalaureate degrees in 44 areas and eight master's degree programs. Over 14,000 students attend classes in five Colleges: Business, Humanities and Social Sciences, Public Service and Sciences and Technology, as well as University College, which serves as the entry point for all students coming to UHD. Approximately 2,000 students graduate each year with degrees in humanities and the arts, social sciences, business, the sciences and technology, education and criminal justice. As one of the four distinct and separate components of the University of Houston System, UHD offers educational opportunities and access to students from a variety of backgrounds, including many first-generation college students, students who work full- or part-time, students with additional family obligations, and students who transfer from community colleges and other higher education institutions. The University of Houston System is a public system of higher education that includes three other universities in addition to UHD—the University of Houston, UH-Clear Lake and UH-Victoria—as well as two teaching centers—UH System at Sugar Land and UH System at Cinco Ranch.
