Parking: Parking is awful. Many of the parking garages are far away from the dorms and you can only park for 30 minute intervals if you want to park near the dorms.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: ALOT to choose from. The price is average for an offcampus housing. Its recommended you get a roommate though. There are more amneties in offcampus housing than on campus. There are also alot of bus routes that go there.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Im in the architecture program which is ranked very high nationally. Professors want to help students succeed and all my peers were successful in high school

Transportation: Public transportation is really good around UT. They have buses running all the time, and if you need a bus to pick you up late at night, then there's a number you can call, and they'll come get you whenever you need them.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The fan base at UT is HUGE! The football games are so fun and spirited, and the campus is really alive- especially on a game day! We have a wide range of sports, from rowing to swimming to football and everything in between. With your Longhorn All-Sports Pass, you can get tickets to all the games, so be sure to buy one if that is something you are going to want!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The slogan "Keep Austin Weird" is all about supporting local businesses, and 'The Drag' (the portion of Guadalupe Street immediately west of campus), and West Campus area are crawling with locally owned restaurants.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: UT is in a very urban area of Austin, and has an endless list of things to do. Known as the "Live Music Capitol of the World", you can always find a concert to go to, or a restaurant with a musician, no matter what day of the week it is!

3 College Freshman

Administration: They're extremely strict about parking and will tow you if you're parked somewhere illegal for even a minute. If you cheat, they WILL kick you out.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: UT offers a wide selection of dining options on campus. Vegans and vegetarians are welcomed. There are also plenty of late night dining options (the Wendy's is open until 4am).
The J2 dining hall located in the Jester Center is a remodeled buffet hall. For only $4.50 you can eat all you want! The quality of the food is excellent as well. From pizza to humus, and everything in between.

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on UT Austin's campus. However, like most places in this world thieves do exist. Therefore keep your doors locked and backpacks close by. Do this and you should have no problems. Also, the campus is well lit at night and there are plenty of emergency phones nearby, so one shouldn't feel uncomfortable walking alone.
UT Austin is excellent at providing students with resources to maintain your health and well being. For example there is an entire department dedicated to promoting the health of students. It is the University Health Services department, located in the Student Services Building.

Diversity: There is a plethora of diversity at the University of Texas at Austin. In my opinion each ethnicity is represented well, whether through clubs, societies, or other organizations. No matter your ethnic background, you are welcome at UT Austin.

Majors: I love being in my major. I enjoy it very much and I like the classes that I am required to take. There is heavy reading because I am an English major. There are many job opportunities offered periodically. The curriculum is designed so that the student has a fair chance of graduating in four years

Majors: Getting into English in the College of Liberal Arts is fairly easy. There are no challenges to speak of unless the college is full, but you can always reapply or transfer into the college. You should get to know your academic adviser the moment that they are assigned to you so that you know that this is the college for you.

Campus Quality: Life here is great! You really have to learn how to balance work and fun here to have a good time! Lots of friendly people! The downside is that jokes about others is frowned upon, so humorous comments can easily be taken seriously here about others.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Its a great school, but the workload can be stressful, best to balance work and fun!

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students agree that they have loved their time here at UT, and they wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. College is the best time of your life, and I can’t think of a better place to spend it than at the University of Texas. Students get a great education while having an awesome college town with everything at their disposal. Don’t try to graduate early. Enjoy your time at UT—go cheer on the Longhorns at all the home games for all sports: football, basketball, baseball, intramurals. See the amenities that the Forty Acres has to offer—the Harry Ransom Center, go to our libraries and see our more than eight million volumes. Go to Gregory Gym and the Rec Center—you have a free gym membership for four years or more—use it.

I came to UT convinced that I was going to transfer to a school in California in the spring. I spent two days here before school started and I never wanted to leave, even to go home and visit my parents and high school friends! I couldn’t leave because I was always afraid that I would miss something because there was always something exciting going on. If you are worried about the fact that UT is so big, don’t. All you have to do is find your niche, and everything else should fall into place. You can find it within your dorm, apartment, organization, fraternity, sorority, or classmates. Although, at times, it may seem overwhelming, UT is not nearly as big as it sounds. All you have to do is make friends, which you will, and the campus will seem infinitely smaller. Come join us!
