Houston Colleges and Universities

Houston colleges and universities are located in the fourth largest city in the United States (the first three are New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago). Houston is considered the Energy Capital of the World, but Houston also offers ample opportunity in health care, finance, technology, and international trade.

Attending college in Houston practically guarantees you the opportunity to get great internship or professional part time experience while you are still in school, allowing you to gain a significant competitive advantage compared to students who live somewhere lacking such plentiful opportunities. And when you aren’t in class or studying, Houston offers world-class restaurants, museums, theater, and sporting events.

Not all of the colleges and universities listed below are actually in Houston, but all of them are located within a reasonable driving distance of Houston.
