University of Houston - Student Life - Housing


Fifteen percent of UH students live on campus. UH has several on campus dormitories: Moody Towers, The Quadrangle, Cougar Village, Calhoun Lofts, Bayou Oaks, Cullen Oaks, and Cambridge Oaks.

Moody Towers, frequently just called "The Towers," is one of the tallest complexes on campus and the largest area of residence halls. Each of the two towers consists of eighteen stories and together house 1,100 students. The Towers feature a newly renovated dining hall. The rooms in The Towers are scheduled to be renovated during the summer of 2011.

The Quadrangle, also known as "The Quad," is the oldest housing area on campus and consists of several coed dorm halls: Bates, Law, Oberholtzer, Settegast, and Taub. Oberholtzer Hall features a smaller, albeit cozy dining hall. The Quadrangle houses 800 students. The rooms in The Quads are scheduled to be renovated during the summer of 2011.

In August 2009, Calhoun Lofts—a new university-owned and operated residential facility aimed at graduate and professional students—opened and includes retail stores, lecture halls, and recreation facilities.

Cougar Village is a new freshman/Honors College dorm which opened in August 2010. The dormitory features themed floors with kitchens and lounges, a tutoring center, computer labs, multi-purpose rooms, study areas, a convenience store, a laundry facility, and a fitness center. Cougar Village is exclusive only to freshman and Honor College students. In addition, Cougar Village II has been approved and is scheduled for construction in 2012.

In addition to traditional dormitories, Cougar Place is an apartment-style housing consisting of 400 units. The complex will soon be demolished and replaced with a new on-campus housing for sophomores.

The university has privately-owned apartment complexes on campus: Cullen Oaks, Bayou Oaks, and Cambridge Oaks.

Famous quotes containing the word housing:

    We have been weakened in our resistance to the professional anti-Communists because we know in our hearts that our so-called democracy has excluded millions of citizens from a normal life and the normal American privileges of health, housing and education.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)
