University of Houston-Victoria



UHV continues to encourage members of the campus community to wear a face covering in indoor public spaces to protect themselves from being infected by others and to prevent infecting others should they have an asymptomatic infection. Read the recent CDC guidelines.

Positive Cases

UHV will provide information about COVID-19 as developments occur. Information about positive cases in UHV community members is available and is updated every Monday.


The university remains in regular contact with local, state and federal health officials for the latest information and will continue to provide updates when warranted. Read the communications that have been shared with the UHV community.

Phased Reopening

UHV is in Phase 5 of a Phased Reopening Plan. This means that UHV and UHV Katy are fully operational with faculty and staff on campus, classes fully occupied and campus events taking place without restrictions. UHV is offering regular face-to-face classes during the fall semester in addition to the hybrid and fully online classes that the university offered before the pandemic. The university’s residence halls are occupied at regular capacity. UHV continues to monitor CDC guidelines, state mandates and community conditions to ensure everyone’s safety.

Operations Center

The UHV COVID-19 Operations Center support university students, staff and faculty by advising, referring, monitoring, communicating, documenting, tracking and educating the campus community about COVID-19. The center conducts contact tracing on both the UHV campus in Victoria and at UHV Katy. It is headed up by Jessica Helms, a UHV alumna and a nurse practitioner at DeTar Medical Group.
