Campus is a place to call home
UT has been recognized for its Centennial Mall and landscaped, tree-lined green campus. We provide our students a picturesque and safe environment to call home. UT has a combination of classic and modern architecture, newer classrooms, and labs, not to mention our residence halls are clean and comfortable, new or recently updated, and include all modern amenities for our Rockets. Horton International House is one of nine residence halls on campus, which is the home to our Global Entrepreneurship and Living Learning Community, community kitchens, and ritual washrooms. We are next to one of the city’s most beautiful and historic neighborhoods and the brand-new Gateway development, which features the UT bookstore, restaurants, and shops for students.
UT has more than 200 student organizations to keep our Rockets involved and active all year long. Our rocket family is strong with diversity, service learning, volunteer work, and getting together at events like Homecoming, Songfest, and Rockethon. Living and learning as a UT Rocket, we encourage all of our Rocket family to develop both personally and professionally. We welcome you to campus and invite you to join in on our Rocket pride.
When Rockets aren’t in class or active with an organization, time is well spent at our world-class Student Recreation Center (with its own water slide), intramural fields, or attending one of our free sporting events. That’s right, all students get in free with their Rocket ID to all home games, whether it’s football in the Glass Bowl watching our nationally ranked Rockets, basketball in Savage Arena, or one of over a dozen other sporting events. “See You at the Game” is a motto our Rocket family shares across campus, the country, and with alumni worldwide.
