3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: this is a commuter campus most people live off campus anyway

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: late night dining is fast food only, however during regular people hours theres as least 60 different restaurants in a 20 minute drive

3 College Freshman

Administration: The cops honestly have nothing better to do, but it all boils down to your immediate supervisor and how he or she likes you...

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: refunds take 6 weeks minimum its ridicouslus but other than that everything goes by pretty smoothly people don't want you in too much debt here

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a party person but there's definitely a lot of fun and exciting stuff going on on and around campus, if you want party's frats are the way to go

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: everything is over priced, meal plans are required for on campus freshman and its way too expensive. the dining hall food is middle school cafeteria quality but on the positive side you can eat as much as you want and there is friendly staff who do custom orders

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty good but the apartments are really old. overall its entirely overpriced , but the dorms are almost worth the money, card entry and a semi spacious floor plan are positives

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Applying to UTD was not that bad of an experience. The staff made things easy.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus, thus I don't know much about off campus housing. I wouldn't be a good judge of it.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There's plenty of off campus dining options. I have a few favorites but plenty of other options.

4 College Junior

Administration: The campus has rules and when they apply, you're expected to follow them. However, most of these rules are reasonable.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: There are plenty of options for financial aid. However, actually winning scholarships has been rare for me.

College Junior

Party Scene: I'm not much of a partier. I spend most of my time studying.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is excellent. There's a good variety. The meal plans are a little expensive but not too much.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The building itself is excellent. Plenty of room and study areas to use. There are even pool tables. I love it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Much harder for first time lookers. The school doesn't really put much interest in its own rule that Freshmen live on campus. I was forced to look for somewhere I could afford with a complete stranger that I found on the Off-Campus webside. Almost nobody would help find nearby option. I barely got lucky and found a good place my first year with a easy to deal with roommate

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of good places to eat around. Many choices and chances to try new things

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The police take complaints seriously, especially things like harassment, and I believe only one warning is given for drug possession

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The aid is very good, but I still have debts starting to pile up from loans that I have to get to afford basic living needs

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

UT Dallas isn't all about academics: Its coursework isn't the heaviest of the region; professors are lenient on students at times; and there are few reasons to pull more than three all-nighters a semester. Neither is it a party school where the frats rule campus, nor an athlete's school of big games or a cultural center of arts and literature. It is a little bit of everything. In fact, UTD is so hard to define that many students struggle at first to identify with it. They once dreamed of the Ivies, Rice, or UT Austin, then either failed or could not afford the education, and "ended up" at UTD. And yet, a vast majority of students say they would still choose UTD were they to do it again—more than 80 percent returns every year. Strange as it seems, the mysterious appeal that is UT Dallas eventually touches students' hearts and souls.

If one takes some time to think about it, UT Dallas has always been amazing, if not extraordinary, throughout its history. The face of the campus changes constantly, with new buildings, renovations, and expansions, many of which are fueled by student activities. After all, the hidden connection that begins to bond UTD students and faculty together probably isn't academic rigor, financial aid, or aesthetic qualities, but a burning aspiration for and determined will to change—for the better, that is. How this journey will end—or whether it will end at all—no one can tell. Nevertheless, at this moment, the belief is strong that UTD, as well as its members, will succeed in its mission to shatter the status quo.
