About the Region

Considering or preparing for a position at the University of Texas Medical Branch? You have some great options for where you might make your next home.

With the university, main campus and many clinics clustered in the Galveston/Houston region, you can enjoy a mild, sub-tropical climate year-round, some of the most affordable housing in the nation, excellent educational opportunities, abundant leisure and cultural activities, and the advantages of a small-town feel within minutes of big city amenities offered by the 4th largest metropolis in the U.S.

Beyond the boundaries of the core campus, UTMB offers employment and living as grand and diverse as the Lone Star State itself, with choices as varied as peaceful forested communities in the north and east, to ranching and farming lifestyles to the south, small towns and enclaves never too far away from big city convenience.
