College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, so I can not give a review of the dorms.

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I do not live in the campus housing, I am a commuter.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: One thing that was frustrating about living on campus is that a lot of students are not aware of social events or cool organizations that happen in the university.

College Junior

Campus Housing: A rating wouldn't be applicable because I do not live on campus. I know where the campus housing is located around my school and it seem nice through the outside. I know that students are provided with a special parking for that area and there's also small shuttles that pick up the students at their dorms and take them to other building in which they might have classes. Other than that, I do not know what the dorms look like on the inside.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but I visit friends who do. They seem to live comfortably, but housing is very competitive.

Dorm life allows students to mix different cultures and explore new relationships with unique personalities. Miner Village is the name of the main dormitory on UTEP's campus; it features 218 apartments and has a capacity of 436 students. Residents in dorms are required to share a kitchen, bath, and living space, but they are also given a private room. Overall, Miner Village is well maintained and kept clean.

On-campus residents have a nice grilling area, as well as beach volleyball courts. The lobby features extra activities for residents, such as pingpong, billiards, and computers. Next door to the dormitory is a recreation facility with basketball courts, racquetball courts, and a small gym. Residents are from all over the world, including Brazil, France, Mexico, and Germany. Miner Village is very convenient for students to take full advantage of school resources and events; it's also within walking distance from Albertsons grocery store, restaurants, and Cincinnati Avenue (an area with great nightlife).
