Walk-ins are welcome on the Wharton, Richmond and Sugar Land campuses.  However, you may experience a wait to see the next available advisor.

Note:  The UH-Sugar Land campus has strict parking / ticketing rules, so make sure to park in visitor parking if you do not have a UHSL parking tag.  When viewing the UHSL parking map, the Advising Center is located in Brazos Hall (BH2 on the map).  if you do not have a UH parking permit, we recommend you park in Lot 1A, which is behind Brazos Hall.  This map shows its location.  Payment will have to be made by credit card through text to pay virtual meters by using your smart phone to text UHSL to 25023, then following the prompts.  Rates for parking ranges from $2-$10, depending on length of time parked.
