4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: In regards to off-campus housing, the university does provide the necessary information if we do so choose to live somewhere else besides on campus. Here at UT, off-campus housing seems very convenient and isn't really too separated from the college. Parking is pretty fair game and the cost of living has been deemed far cheaper by students in general. For the most part everyone seems to love living off campus because they have more freedom to do as they please.

Drug Safety: There is a lot of drinking and partying at this school, but drugs do not seem to be too much of an issue. There is, of course, weed consumption, but other than that there is not too much drug usage. Alcohol is common, and it is very clear that the West Campus area is a party-area.

Off-Campus Dining: There is a wide variety of off-campus dining options around the university. Most of the restaurants are not outrageously expensive, but they do not off student discounts, unfortunately. There are many restaurants along "The Drag" that students will eat at throughout the school day.

Parking: The cost of parking on campus is not as expensive as at some other schools, but I am lucky that I live close enough to campus that I do not have to worry about finding a parking spot or buying a parking pass. Some of my peers do have to park a significant distance from class, however, they did not have to pay as much for parking passes that are further away.

Off-Campus Housing: There is a lot of off-campus housing near campus. The vast majority of students live off campus, and one of the most popular areas is West Campus. Austin is a growing city and there is a lot of development, so it is not too hard finding a place to live, but the areas around campus are expensive. Parking is an issue around campus, but some of the apartment complexes do have assigned parking, however, it can be difficult to find parking when visiting the area or in complexes with not enough parking for all of the residents.

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!
