FYRE Program

Welcome to the First Year Residential Experience Program at the University of Houston!

FYRE is for all incoming First Year students who will be living on campus. The FYRE program aims to promote successful first year student transition into campus life and the residential communities at the University of Houston. Through active participation, students will be offered meaningful opportunities to interact with campus partners, faculty, and peers. The programmatic focus will include class registration, financial aid, study skills, and the development of social networks. Through these interactions, FYRE students will acquire the knowledge and confidence to persist to their second year and beyond.
