I love my dorm, it is where i meet all my best friends, living on campus is a great place to make friends and be in a social environment. A down side is that it is quiet expensive, and my pot-luck roommate and i disagree alot.

It was pretty easy getting into the College of Natural Science, all i had to do was apply my second semester of my Freshmen year.

Very good options, especially because Guadalupe St. is right near the University which is full of popular restaurants.

It's THE University of Texas. Athletics is one of the most important things here so everything is EXCELLENT.
College Senior 2013-07-16T19:31:59Z
Lots of choices, close to campus, all your essentials are near by. However, the apartments are really expensive close to campus and parking is way too expensive

There are on campus buses that go all around UT, they are free and run all day long. There are also metro buses that run across austin that are free for students, but they are a little scary at night. You get used to all of it though, and really the main way Austin people get around is just bikes and walking. I rarely use my car.
College Junior 2013-07-16T03:17:12Z
Austin is a very open city. We have a wide range of asian, african american, indian, etc as well as heterosexuals and homosexuals. At UT they are only worried about how well you do in class, no discrimination.

I wouldn't choose anything other than the fine arts school just because that opened my eyes to the real world. I saw that I wasn't the only talented musician and I had to look at other strengths/careers if I wanted to be successful in the music career. I am a smart person and do well with studying so thats how I came across studying music business, and then later attending law school so I can work within music copyright law.
College Junior 2013-07-16T03:12:01Z
My program is music so you have to declare an instrument. You then audition that instrument to be able to get into the music building. I was voice and it wasn't too hard to get in, but it is pretty intimidating. I would say sign up for an audition as soon as you can so that you can actually get to see the fine arts building before hand.
College Junior 2013-07-16T03:09:09Z
It is very open and straightforward. Offers a lot of opportunities, but you have to be willing to work hard and be outgoing to actually get those. Work load is moderate, and professors put a lot of the responsibility on the students which is typical. You have to have a strong set goal though, and not veer from your path to be successful.

There are plenty of them, but most run on proxies and so are not actual computers but take a portion of remote servers, so they're not as fast, or stable as a normal PC.
College Sophomore 2013-07-15T04:51:01Z
Awesome! Nightlife, parties, clubs. It's very diverse and lively, even at night time!
College Sophomore 2013-07-11T19:27:58Z
We play division 1 sports and everyone is very wrapped into the spirit. We have one of the biggest stadiums in the world- and in the fall, football reigns king!

There are lots of options here for those of all ethnic groups however, the ethnic students only make up a small portion of the student population. THe campus is really open to all diferent religions and sexual orientations.
College Sophomore 2013-07-11T19:20:39Z
There is TONS of different housing options from houses to apartments.
College Sophomore 2013-07-11T17:34:56Z
The campus is absolutely beautiful, but man do the buildings look old. Regardless, they look awesome!
College Sophomore 2013-07-11T17:31:09Z
Simply the best. There is no comparison to the city of Austin.
College Sophomore 2013-07-11T17:17:53Z
UT Austin truly does its best to fit the needs of each and every student from a financial standpoint, but it is beyond rare to receive any aid. Good luck.
College Sophomore 2013-07-11T17:15:08Z
I will be attending the University of Texas at Austin for the first time this upcoming Fall Semester, and I am beyond excited. The amount of pride and school spirit that Longhorns posses falls second to none. Austin is electric, and UT is right in the heart of it all. I simply can't wait.

If you drive to campus for class, just park somewhere and walk the rest or take the bus. The campus is pretty big but by the time you drive to your class and find somewhere to park, your class will probably be over. The police hand are parking tickets like candy on Halloween-- they have no remorse. Cars often get towed near campus so be careful. Living on campus, you really don't need a car unless you want to drive to a party or go to the store.mall. But the city buses are free to all UT students so that is always an option. A car is not as necessary living on campus freshman year.

There are usually a lot of computer available, in the libraries or dorms. Most people have a laptop and prefer to use that instead so it shouldn't be hard to find a open computer. For convenience, I suggest to bring your own laptop but there are many computers available if you absolutely cannot afford one. You can print on campus in libraries but it usually cost about 10 cents per page. There are certain places you can print for free depending on the classes you are taking or your major. Bring your own printer isn't necessary, especially since once people hear about it, your room will become a hot spot for printing. UT gives everyone certain amount of bandwidth to use per week and once it runs out it goes VERY SLOW. So if you're into downloading things, youtube, netflix ect. I suggest you to buy extra bandwidth so you will not run out every week and have to suffer until it restarts.

Guys & Girls:
UT is sooooo diverse! That is what is amazing about the campus! There are variety of people with so many different interest, it's hard NOT to fit in. You can practically wear anything (but please wear something) and not look crazy. As far as interests, there are many different clubs and if you don't find something, you could start one and i assure you people will come. Even renting out the TV room for a TV show every week can make you friends. Social life is AMAZING. Whether you like hip-hop, country, pop, indie there is a place for you. If you just like to chill, you can find people who do that too. The best thing about UT is the diversity and different cultures. Sometimes it clashes but most of the time it is a pleasurable experience. Don't be shy to go make some friends!

Some clubs are 18 and older, but most of the bars and nightlife is for 21 and up. Granted, you can still have fun at 18 and tons of students just use fake ID's, but being 21 is definitely a plus if you're heading down 6th.
College Junior 2013-07-10T01:21:51Z
Austin is a great place to do anything fun. There are lots of beautiful and fun outdoor activities such as kayaking, visiting Hamilton Falls, and swimming in Barton Creek. The surrounding area is also beautiful; I would highly recommend taking the drive from campus to the Oasis on Lake Travis. Also, lots of bars, clubs, and theaters that are great to visit.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
