The university is located in the heart of downtown Houston, one of the most culturally diverse metropolitan areas in the United States. Therefore, the university naturally creates an environment that welcomes and embraces students from all backgrounds. Its campus covers an area of 40 acres and is located in downtown Houston, with a satellite location in northwest Harris County. Without the university’s state-of-the-art entertainment center, club teams, and intramural sports, the university experience would be incomplete. All of this allows students to stay in shape, show off their university Gator spirit, form bonds through teamwork, and be unremarkable. Although the university does not have inter-university sports programs, in addition to many fitness programs, it also provides students with many club sports and intramural sports. The Sports and Fitness Department coordinates these activities in the Jesse H. Jones Student Life Center on campus. Student activities provide students with various opportunities to participate. Here, students can join a student organization, interact with other students, faculty, and staff with similar interests, and keep in touch.
