About the University of Houston Tartan
Your unique tartan pattern was created using our proprietary algorithm, which combines the year UH was founded - 1927 - with the geographic coordinates of its campus - 29.719° N, 95.342° W.
The individual thread counts reveal your unique time and place in history using UH's official primary colors - Red and White. UH's heart, mind, and spirit are also expressed through these secondary colors:
- Brick Red for the heartbeat of your open, welcoming community
- Gray for your status as a Tier One research institution
- Gold for your enduring spirit of community service
