The University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas is the only Catholic university in Houston, recognized by U.S. News and World Report as one of the region’s best universities for over 20 consecutive years. We welcome students of all races and religions to our ethnically and culturally diverse campus located just minutes from downtown and the famed Texas Medical Center where many of our students do internships. A private university, we have an average class size of 16 and an average yearly tuition cost of less than $13,000 (after financial aid). Our students average an annual salary exceeding $50,000 in their first year after graduating according to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

Undergraduate students can major in biology, psychology, bioinformatics, communications, political science, music, business, Catholic studies and many other subjects with tutors and tutoring services available in biology, accounting, finance, writing and more.

We also offer one of the premiere BSN nursing programs in Houston, Texas. The Carol and Odis Peavy School of Nursing here on the UST campus is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

The University of St. Thomas also hosts one of the most comprehensive graduate programs in Houston, Texas. Our Cameron School of Business is an AACSB accredited school offering MBA programs along with degrees including a Masters of Science (MS) in Finance, a Masters of Science (MS) in Accounting and many other degree plans. Our School of Education and Human Services offers a Masters in Education along with degrees in teaching, clinical mental health counseling, ethical leadership and Catholic education.

The university features a series of pre-professional programs such as the pre-law program which requires courses focused on various disciplines including LSAT prep for students here in Houston, Tx. The pre-physician’s assistant program is designed to prepare students for entry into physician assistant school. And the post-baccalaureate pre-health program prepares students who wish to apply to allopathic medicine, osteopathic medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy or veterinary medicine schools. Other pre-professional programs include pre-med, pre-dental, pre-optometry and pre-pharmacy.

UST also runs a series of Houston summer camps. Athletic camps provide opportunities for athletes of all ages to develop their skills in a fun, sportsmanlike environment, promoting individual improvement that leads to athletic success. Our summer music program camps for piano, guitar, pipe organ, choir and string orchestra allows students to participate in daily classes, ensemble and student performances and concerts. Camps are designed for students who will be in grades 3 – 12 in the coming fall.

And our summer reading program in Houston provides an opportunity for children and adults alike to enhance their reading skills. Program locations also include Conroe, Kingwood, Missouri City, Richmond and Spring.

The benefits of a Catholic education cannot be overstated. Dedicated to educating leaders of faith and character, the University of St. Thomas was founded by the Basilian Fathers in 1947 and remains one of the most respected Catholic universities in Texas.

I feel as if most of the reviews given do not do justice to the University itself and to the incoming freshman's coming straight from high school. I chose to go to this particular university because my family engraved this stigma against large universities. "Smaller classes" are better because you will get a more personable experience with your professor. Also, growing up in a Catholic household, this was the ideal school for me. I was also drawn into the University for many other reasons. 1. I was drawn to the nursing program because it stated that all "incoming freshman's with 3.5 GPA's will have automatic admittance into the nursing program". 2. The scholarship I received in the mail blew my mind. However, little did I know that it would still cost me an arm and a leg to pay for me staying there. 3. The location because it is in the most beautiful part of Houston. 4. The friendly faces and helpful staff. I will never forget any of the professor's I have taken because they really are the most kindest people you'll ever meet. (most of them at least). I spent one year at UST and I can honestly tell you that I have gained some and lost some. I have gained great communication skills, great study skills, few great friends, and student debt. On the other hand, I lost one year of college, thirty thousand dollars, and valuable knowledge I could have further expanded instead of taking philosophy and theology requirements. I enrolled to UST intending to graduate with a nursing degree. I thought I gained automatic admittance due to my 3.5+ GPA in highschool. However, that was not the case because you must apply to UST first as a student, then apply into the nursing school at the end of the year (which is really competitive because there are only 40 slots and 100-200 students applying?). If I were to have known that I would have just gone to UTA where they do live up to that statement of automatic admittance with a certain GPA requirement. So I basically spent a year paying for graduate school when all I needed were pre-reqs that I could have taken at HCC. I remember signing up for ONE summer statistics class and the price totaled to $4,000+. People at UH spend $4,000-5,000 in ONE SEMESTER with 12 credits. Also, to all the feminist's out there, they pay male professor's more than female professors (for doing the same job). And that does not undermine the fact that the professors make less than the average salary while the president of the university makes more than the average university president salary? hm. With the tuition exceeding $30,000+ a year, it comes to show where the money goes to since you cannot see it on the campus. The library is out dated, the buildings are outdated, however the church is beautiful. I guess a really good thing UST does is how they offer amazing scholarships to veterans and police officers who serve. Another disappointment is the lack of student/campus life. This school seems to be more fitting for older students, not younger incoming freshman. There are not many active clubs or events like you would see at UTSA, UH, or any public college. It somewhat makes you lose the "college experience". However, they do offer retreats and study abroad opportunities. It is really inclusive to Catholicism, however it comes to no surprise as this is a catholic university. If you are financially well off, with money to spare for 6 extra classes (18 credits total) and smaller class sizes then this is the place for you. If you get admitted for free due to financial aid, then even better. Do not attend this school if you are an incoming freshman looking to experience college to the max. This university won't give you the opportunity to explore what you want, instead it will decide for you. And smaller class sizes will not make you pass, it is up to you to take that initiative. No matter how big or small the university is, it is your initiative that makes you succeed. All in all, it is an average school, just isn't the one for me.

The school is full of racist professors. They even force you to take 3 Theology classes, and 3 Philosophy classes. I don't see how that is related to my major. This school is waste of time and money! I graduated and learned absolutely NOTHING! You are better off going to TSU , Yes! TSU is a lot better than UST. The school functions like a business rather than an institute of higher education. Unless you wanna become the next pope, AVOID coming to this school. You'll just waste your time and money. This is coming from a guy who graduated with a 3.88 GPA.

Pros: small classes, teachers know you personally, small beautiful campus. Cons: teachers know you personally (mandatory attendance for most classes), also a lot of jumping through hoops for different things.

Great private school, some of the classes are in houses so it feels like Hogwarts. I did well with my M.Ed. Pretty campus and has ingress portals.

Great Professors! - My complaint: I'm a graduate student that goes to work and class at night , and I would like to finish the program as soon as possible. I was planning to take 2 classes per semester and be done in no more than 2 years but I'm very behind on my scheduled plans because classes are not available every semester. it is so frustrating - I'm really thinking on moving to the University of Houston. So if you are lucky to be able to enroll for the 1 class per semester you are looking for and don't be bother with the lack of options, then this is your kind of school.
