Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing near UT will cost you an arm and a leg, however, there are options 20 and 30 min away that are waaaay less expensive and on the shuttle routes.

Drug Safety: I have never seen any drug or alcohol use on campus, however I don't live on campus and I'm pretty sure no one comes to class with marijuana in their back pack. when school is out...is another story.

Off-Campus Dining: The cost of the food dives on campus are a little outrageous, however there are always low cost alternatives around the corner.

5 College Junior

Academics: There is a wide range of academics offered. of course the STEM courses are the most difficult, time consuming and labor intensive. However, definitely worth it!

Administration: I haven't had any encounters with a campus police officer.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation can be annoying for a few reasons. The bus system is pretty good but sometimes they get backed up. Really the core issue is that traffic is bad, especially on the drag.

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!
