Services

Student services

The Office of the Dean of Students creates a culture of caring for students, their families, faculty, and staff by providing exemplary programs and services designed to enhance students' academic and personal success.

Housing services

University Housing provides the best possible housing at a reasonable cost to residents, while at the same time providing more than just the basic physical needs of the apartments, houses, and residence hall rooms.

The purpose for having residence halls is not simply to provide residents a place to sleep.  UTA is striving to create an environment where emotional, social, cultural, academic and recreational growth and development may be enhanced.  Through residence hall programs and activities, this student development concept can be realized.  

Medical services

UT Arlington Health Services is an ambulatory health care facility fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care. Health Services’ mission is to support academic success by providing excellent health care and promoting wellness. We strive to provide enrolled UT Arlington students with quality, accessible, comprehensive, and cost-effective primary health care.

Student Life

Campus life

The University of Texas at Arlington is located in Tarrant County, also known as the mid-city area. 

It's centrally located between Dallas (to the east) and Fort Worth (to the west). Arlington is easily accessible and is located 30 minutes from the two major airports in the metroplex—DFW International Airport and Love Field.

Less than two miles from AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Park, where the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers, respectively, play, and less than three miles from Six Flags Over Texas, UTA is just a stone's throw away from the excitement the city has to offer.

Student clubs

With more than 300 campus organizations, more than 10,000 students living on or adjacent to campus, and a constant flow of speakers, entertainers, and musicians visiting year-round, UTA has an unstoppable energy.

Accreditation

The University of Texas at Arlington is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral degrees. 

Student Reviews

Practical.
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My overall study experience at my university was great. Classes taught me the theoretical side of journalism and communications, and I worked at my college's newspaper where I applied what I learned in the classroom into the real world.

You will never regret being a MAVERICK!

UTA boasts of very dedicated tutors who are always ready to go the extra mile in order for their students to succeed. I truly admire the diversity that is present on campus. Regardless of where you come from, you are almost guaranteed to find others. There are several amenities present on campus. Overall, I recommend UTA wholeheartedly to anyone who is ready to learn.

Your Best Option.
