There's been flooding on the campuses of the University of Houston but no apparent structural damage to the buildings, Chancellor Renu Khator told CNBC on Thursday.
"We are ready to resume classes on Tuesday, at least on most of our campuses," Khator said in a "Squawk Box" interview. "We have eight locations for universities. We have suffered minor damage. Some of the universities have had flooding."
The University of Houston System said it serves nearly 71,000 students with an annual budget of $1.7 billion, and produces about $6 billion worth of economic impact on the Greater Houston area each year.
The UH System includes the University of Houston, UH-Clear Lake, UH-Downtown and UH-Victoria, and campuses in Katy, Northwest Houston, Pearland and Sugar Land.
