Boil Water Notice, Housing, and Dining Updates
02/17/2021, 12:50:02 PM

Dear Residents,

boil water notice is now in effect for the city of Houston until further notice. The UH central plant, which supplies steam to heat buildings and hot water throughout campus cannot operate within the low water pressure currently being experienced throughout Houston. The University is working to distribute essential accommodations to campus. Limited food service is being provided and we are working on deliveries of bottled water and portable toilets to campus.

Under the Boil Water Notice, tap water is unsafe to drink. Water for drinking, cooking and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for human consumption purposes.

All University classes and activities are cancelled through Thursday, Feb. 18, 2021, including UH at Sugar Land and UH at Katy.

Our Emergency Operations team and department liaisons are addressing issues as they arise, to the extent possible. We appreciate your patience as well get through this unprecedented winter weather situation together.

The University will provide updates on this developing situation at
