Alumni Benefits

Your investment in the University of Houston-Downtown is a lifelong connection, not just a relationship that ends after a few years. The University of Houston-Downtown is committed to upholding the value of your degree and providing you excellent alumni services.

All UHD graduates in good standing have access to a host of great benefits and campus services, including:

UHD Alumni ID Card

In order to take advantage of on-campus services and use UHD facilities, you must obtain your UHD Alumni ID Card. To obtain your card, bring a valid photo ID card and UHD transcript to the Jesse H. Jones Student Life Center. An alumni ID card costs $10. The ID card fee is waived if a UHD graduate purchases a Sports & Fitness alumni membership.

Career Development Center

UHD houses two Career Development Centers for students and alumni. Conveniently located in the One Main Building and in the College of Business on Shea Street, these centers assist students and alumni with job searches, resumes, interviews, networking, preparing for career fairs and other invaluable tools necessary for landing the right job.

If you are an employer, you can hire Gators by posting job vacancies and internship opportunities on the Jobs for Gators board or recruiting on campus.

Computing Services
