Three Decades in Houston


In partnership with Lone Star College, OLLU opened Houston’s first weekend degree program on the campus of Lone Star College-North Harris.


OLLU-Houston operations moved to the Lone Star College University Center in The Woodlands.


A stand-alone campus is completed for OLLU-Houston on Beltway 8 near I-45.

Core Values

OLLU Core Values are Community, Integrity, Trust and Service. OLLU’s presence in Houston is built on these values and the heritage of the Sisters of Divine Providence, the university’s founders, who call us to provide education where it is needed. When OLLU-Houston opened its doors more than 30 years ago, there were few options for working adults who wanted to complete or continue their education. OLLU-Houston’s flexible programs allow for a balance of work, family and school.
