The computer labs in the FAC and in the PCL are always available. The FAC has slightly better computers but the PCL is where everyone usually is. They keep the equipment top notch for us.

The nightlife is amazing regardless of your age. The bars and clubs are fun but they can wait until you're 21. The house parties here are very memorable ways to complete the UT experience. With so many students living off campus it is never hard to find one.

There is typically a lot parking available you just have to look around. I give it a B because it can be really expensive to pay and park everyday. I typically get to campus about 20 minutes early to find a good spot and have time to walk to class.

There are multiple shuttle buses that can take you each to part of the university campus.

There are diverse groups of people located on the university campus. Students are free to express their political, religion, and sexual orientation as often and openly as they want to. There are several classes in the social sciences and histories that educate the students the different cultural backgrounds of different ethnicities and races.

Parking is entirely too expensive and PTS is unfair.

Computer labs are always hidden, but they usually work pretty well..

There is the Drag right across campus that has so many options, but there are also other eateries in walking distance

Campus housing is expensive at UT Austin, but the convenience of living on campus, with several dining options and the Drag across from campus make up for the cost. Each dorm on campus has it’s own vibe or personality. The Jester dorms for example are more social, many people meet in the lounges to hang out, whereas Roberts or Prather are more quiet and studious. When I lived on campus I stayed in Roberts. I loved living there, the old style of architecture added so much charm.

For an incoming freshman, their financial aid packages are more generous and give students the incentive to stay. A word of caution: after freshman year, some of the scholarships that were given for being a first year are not given again and, based on my experience, your financial package drops. While I still managed to survive, just keep in mind your expenses.

Campus food is generally pretty good, but it eventually becomes the same food everyday and you do get tired of it after a while. If dining in the halls has tired you out, the Drag on Guadalupe offers an immense variety of restaurants with various different types of foods. A portion of your meal plan can be used to dine in many of these restaurants; all of which range from Mexican to Chinese to Greek to Indian to just good ol' style pizza. Try some new places out and spice up your dining lifestyle every now and then.

I lived on campus for two years and I always had plenty to choose from. Even if you get bored with the food from the many dinning halls, there is plenty of other restaurants on Guadalupe street that are incredibly diverse and ( a big plus) in walking distance!

UT is a wonderful mix of people from all backgrounds. Being in a more liberal Texas city means diversity is often celebrated. The University also brings in a lot of foreign students who bring new and interesting perspectives.

If you live on campus, it's easy enough to get around without a car. Thanks to limited campus housing, however, most students don't. Austin has a decent public transit system, but you still probably need a car if you live off campus. Student parking on campus is a hassle though. The lots are far away from everything. You're better off getting an apartment on a bus route and riding in. If you want to park on campus in the evenings though when spaces open up you're still going to need a permit.

UT is fairly relaxed about what you can and can't do on campus, but every school has its limits. We're a smoke free campus now, and the campus cops will arrest you if you try to streak of swim in the fountains, but within reason they're pretty easy going.

The athletic centers on campus are up to date and always clean. The student centers recently just went under construction and are modern with great food choices and lots of seating areas. Film committee puts on free movies for UT students weekly!

Pretty good up to date computers for the engineering labs. Printing is usually very easy and free depending on your major. The wireless speed is so fast on campus. WiFi is available all over campus.

Obviously "Keep Austin Weird" keeps the atmosphere very funky and there is always something to do in Austin! The trailer food scene is amazing and shopping is eclectic. You can find something for everyone in Austin.

Parking is limited because the school is located right in the middle of the city. Garage parking is really the only type of parking that is offered close to campus, unless you live near campus in an apartment. Permit costs can be in the hundreds for both commuters and on-campus residents. There is not really a need for a car if you're living on campus because most everything is within walking distance and the public transportation system in Austin is pretty good.

I'm not in Greek life so I can only tell you how I view them as not being a part of them. The majority of people in Greek life are really only there for the partying. You can definitely get by without ever being in a fraternity or sorority. I will say that the service sororities and fraternities are pretty good. They focus on community instead of partying.

There is always something going on to get the students involved. I enjoy many of the events the campus holds and the different orgs.

Guys & Girls:
There are a variety of people at UT, who are also smart and happy. I don't feel judged and I like meeting the people there

The school/city provides a free bus from campus/west campus to downtown. One of the best bar scenes I've ever experienced.

UT basically has almost every field of study you could want.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
