4 College Junior

Administration: This wouldn't be a Tier-1 School if it wasn't pretty strict, but it works for what's needed.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is strict in areas that this type of attention is needed, such as anything involving drugs or anything that could compromise any of the students. In areas that do not involve the compromising the student body, the strictness is more lenient and allows students to feel free to impact the university for the better by joining organizations.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Campus administrators enforce the rules of being a drug-free campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Everything looks always in control.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I've seen admin. take charge when the situation calls for it, but as long as you don't act crazy or disrespect any of the staff you'll be fine.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The University is not very demanding with rules around campus, with students driving through campus with ease. However, the campus police do not tolerate unauthorized vehicles on campus and issue fines to students that do not follow regulations. Alcohol on campus is regulated very well at UTEP, only peeking out when students have a case of orange fever and it's time to tailgate for football season. Besides this time of the school year, UTEP does not have any obscene dilemmas with controlling drug problems on campus.

UTEP does have a solid grip on attendance. Students that miss more than five days of class face a deduction of a letter grade on their final grade. Anything surpassing the average absence will result in an automatic failure, with students receiving an F in the specific course. When it comes to campus housing, visitors are only able to access the premises if they know someone living in the dormitory. The doors that allow access into the dormitory are locked by a magnet that may only be unlocked by residents. Overall, campus police are extremely helpful around campus, but they are always on the lookout for anyone coloring outside the lines.
