4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Frat houses get annoying, but house parties are fun. I don't like 6th Street because it's dirty and trashy.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's convenient that the campus is right off of Guad, since there's so many food places available there.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Required attendance is dumb. If I'm paying for courses, then I should be able to choose if/when I attend them.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Our people are decently helpful with it; however, I did, at a time, have someone who wasn't helpful. I also had a veteran who was a jerk to me via phone who worked in the VA area at UT.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: All I eat on campus are the fast-food places (i.e. Wendy's, Chick-fil-a), and they're pretty good.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus, but some of my friends do. The living is too compact.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Lots of gyms available and flexible hours. UT football makes the campus go crazy, but in a good way. I don't know anywhere else where you could find that level of spirit and enthusiasm

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Advertisers take liberty with what they call 'close to campus housing', which preys a bit on students whom are new to the area. However, the actually close options are really convenient, just make sure you're getting the lease you want and aren't blindsided with the fact that you unknowingly signed a 12-month lease

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love off campus dining at UT! There are so many unique places nearby where students can experience totally new foods, or where they can get their tried and true favorites

5 College Sophomore

Administration: I've had no interactions with the administration at UT, aside from my Academic Advisor, who is absolutely wonderful

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Options at residence hall cafeterias is pretty limited, but the food options around and off campus make up for it

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Close to classes and in a great location. However, it does give you a little less freedom than living off campus because of the guest rules and restrictions on what you can have in your room, such as certain kinds of light bulbs

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's a whole lot better than late night on campus, there isn't much open late night on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: they dont have a lot of kosher/halal places its mostly fast food/chain restaurants like chick-fill-a

3 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of restaurants on campus but I have never been to one

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Extremely pricey if you want to be in West campus (which is extremely convent and close to campus) but it's a lot of fun and the housing is fairly nice. Depends which apartment complex

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: 6th Street is so much fun on Thursday nights

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Rowdy parties. frat parties. house parties. UT is known as a party school, also 6th street is always live.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Austin is a foodie paradise. You will find a restaurant that fits your tastebuds. There are apps that offer discounts on off-campus dining, so dining shouldn't be a worry.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It depends on who the officer is, but generally the campus police I've seen have been relatively nice.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had no problem with my financial aid. I turned in my FAFSA and accepted the aid I wanted. Simple. However, UT is notorious for being stingy with their money.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining halls are okay, the menu is pretty consistent which gets boring after a while. There are some "markets" in dorms that supply frozen food. There are some fast food restaurants available at the Union or SAC, and also the "Drag" has plenty of dining options at decent prices, apps such as Hook'd or Tastebuds offer deals on certain restaurants at discounted prices making eating out relatively cheaper on a college budget.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms at UT are pretty much hit-or-miss depending on what your personal preferences are. I lived in Duren, a newer dorm in the north side of campus and enjoyed it, however the walk to campus is longer compared to the more "popular" dorm Jester.

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!
