Once a Coog, Always a Coog

A part of you

Some things are a part of you forever. Those who embark on an educational journey with the University of Houston find a place they can call their own — not just for four years, but for the rest of their lives. Our future growth depends on the success of our past, and we need alumni like you to continue our strong legacy.

Since 1940, the University of Houston Alumni Association has served and supported the University of Houston, more than 255,000 alumni, loyal friends, and the community the University calls home.
