UHD Hashtags

University Hashtags

The “#” symbol precedes a word or phrase used in social media posts and creates a hashtag. Hashtags are used to create trending topics and keywords across social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Social media users at the University of Houston-Downtown are encouraged to apply the following University hashtags to social media messages spotlighting student success stories, events and other UHD-related subjects.

  • #FinishUHDStrong: Celebrating accomplishments, achievements and/or UHD success—commencement, awards, sports victories, a great semester 

  • #UHDGators: Identifying the University community

  • #UHDProud: Showing Pride in the University or an individual’s accomplishments in the classroom or the community

  • #FutureUHDGators:  Prospective students

Work a hashtag into your sentence – "This @UHDowntown Gator knows how to #FinishUHDStrong." 

Or, use a hashtag to complement your post. “Congratulations Gator Graduates! #FinishUHDStrong”
