3 College Student

Campus Strictness: The school is not very strict with their own rules. They usually don't enforce them until after there is a big violation, just to remind other students that they are still in place.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I am a student off-campus, so I just go to class and leave either to work or home, so I am not very familiarized with the campus strictness. The class strictness it is great.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The strictness at school isn't so extreme due to the fact that it is an open campus. Visitors are allowed and they cannot constrict the students.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: There honestly does not seem to be an overbearing strictness at my school. I would not say it affects student's lives too much.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus is not very strict. They treat us like adults, which is always good.

The University is not very demanding with rules around campus, with students driving through campus with ease. However, the campus police do not tolerate unauthorized vehicles on campus and issue fines to students that do not follow regulations. Alcohol on campus is regulated very well at UTEP, only peeking out when students have a case of orange fever and it's time to tailgate for football season. Besides this time of the school year, UTEP does not have any obscene dilemmas with controlling drug problems on campus.

UTEP does have a solid grip on attendance. Students that miss more than five days of class face a deduction of a letter grade on their final grade. Anything surpassing the average absence will result in an automatic failure, with students receiving an F in the specific course. When it comes to campus housing, visitors are only able to access the premises if they know someone living in the dormitory. The doors that allow access into the dormitory are locked by a magnet that may only be unlocked by residents. Overall, campus police are extremely helpful around campus, but they are always on the lookout for anyone coloring outside the lines.
