Overall Experience: I learned a lot from my experiences in school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm space is average. I like that the dorms are centrally located to classes. The best part about housing is the scenery. Campus sits central to the Hillsborough river.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Beautiful campus in Florida right on the river, great social life, and teachers

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's very expensive to live off-campus unless you rent a poorly built house or you find an apartment far enough to where the prices are lower. Living off-campus 99% of the time requires the student to have a car which can also add to unnecessary costs. The only nice thing about living off-campus is the freedom of having your own rules.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Unless you're 21 the nightlife is pretty lame. House parties will occur here and there between sports teams and greek life but that's only occasionally. If a bar is 18+ they make it very difficult for you to have a fun time and fill up really quick so you're stuck waiting in line forever. The students are a lot of fun and can definitely enjoy themselves there's just not enough opportunities to mostly because house parties get shut down so fast by Tampa PD.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is delicious and it brings a very modern and fun city environment with it but, it can get pricey. So, if you're on a budget it's not really an option. The different restaurants and cafe's offer a lot of variety and there are plenty of healthy places to eat at and then there's also fun sports bars and unique eating experiences.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus security does rounds around all the buildings which is reassuring being in a city environment however, it can be annoying on a weekend when you're hanging out and get noise complaints. If you have any complaints of drugs or alcohol they will also tear your room apart until it is found. Campus security will also post inside of the halls in front of the elevators to make sure you're a student at UT which is again, reassuring but, also annoying because of the privacy of walking in late at night to your building.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process scholarship wise was very easy and the school did most of the work. To receive scholarships you only need a good GPA and ACT/SAT. As for other financial aid, it was a tedious process but the school offered a lot of extra help and ways to get financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are good and bad days when eating at the dining halls. For one, a lot of the dining options have limiting hours. Second, the food is very unhealthy and the only healthy food either isn't available at all times or cost spartan dollars which is inconvenient. The variety of the cafeteria food is also not the best. The meals generally are all the same and the flavor is never there. Having a meal plan is also extremely expensive if some days I'm only getting a coffee and a small sandwich. The service at most of the dining halls is poor although compared to other schools I've been to, UT has better options for on-campus eating.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Of the many colleges and universities in Florida, the University of Tampa is one of the best places to study and enjoy college life. Not only is UT known for being a great place with high academic standards, but also the diversity and different cultures that are found here make the campus an enjoyable place to be. The amazing weather and location also help—thanks to the fact that Tampa is on the West coast of Florida. There is a wide variety of beaches within minutes of the campus. Also, the nightlife makes the University of Tampa a pretty attractive place for kids who are used to the city style of living.

The school spirit can be felt everywhere, and there is always something to do or an event to attend. Overall, the University of Tampa is a wonderful place to study and also to relax in between coursework. Once you're here, you'll feel like you're home.
