Life at UT Dallas
Life as a Comet is fun. You'll find things like a full-service residential community, plus athletics, recreational sports and an activity center. You'll also have access to health, counseling and career centers, and a wide range of student organizations to join. Whether you're searching for new friends or for a way to connect with a cause, opportunities abound at UT Dallas.
Student housing offers affordable on-campus living options for those who appreciate being close to classes, dining and recreational opportunities. Incoming freshmen live in our residence halls, and apartments and residence halls are offered to all other students who wish to reside on campus.
Living Learning Communities
Living Learning Communities are groups of freshmen who share common academic goals or interests. Students involved in these communities live in the LLC residence hall, enroll in courses together and participate in customized group activities.
UT Dallas offers an array of dining choices, including the Comet Cafe, The Pub and a large dining hall situated near the residence halls (pictured above). Menu options include burgers, pizza, sushi, sandwiches and hot meals. Other eateries on campus include Jason’s Deli, Papa John’s, Subway, Chick-fil-A and Einstein Bros. Bagels.
The Activity Center includes a fitness area, racquetball, squash and basketball courts, a climbing wall, a multi-purpose room and an indoor swimming pool. Outdoors there are sand volleyball courts, tennis courts and softball, baseball and soccer fields. A separate facility, Recreation Center West, is located near the residence halls and features indoor courts, a fitness area and a multipurpose room.
The main campus is in the Richardson, Texas, Telecom Corridor, 18 miles (29 km) north of downtown Dallas. The institution, established in 1961 as the Graduate Research Center of the Southwest and later renamed the Southwest Center for Advanced Studies (SCAS), began as a research arm of Texas Instruments. In 1969, the founders bequeathed SCAS to the state of Texas, and Governor Preston Smith signed the bill officially creating The University of Texas at Dallas.
