Launched in 1974. Still soaring.

Celebrating 50 Years of Milestones and Achievements

As the University of Houston-Clear Lake (UHCL) marks its 50th anniversary, it recognizes the significant milestones in its history - including both the growth in and on campus and also by way of the individuals who have matriculated through the institution. These milestones are testaments to the power of hard work, dedication, and perseverance. As we celebrate our 'golden' anniversary, we will pay homage to our past achievements by hosting a series of events throughout the year.

Upcoming Events

This fall will mark University of Houston-Clear Lake's 50th anniversary, but the celebrating begins this month. Multiple fun-filled and history-centered events are planned throughout the year. These festivities will give a nod to the past and celebrate the present, complete with everything you'd expect of a UHCL celebratory event - free food, swag, and more!
