What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
  • The University of Texas at Dallas is on a 500-acre campus located in the Dallas suburb of Richardson, Texas. Those who stay in the modern looking buildings on campus not only have the option to live in traditional residence halls and apartment style housing, they can also choose to live in UTD’s Living Learning Communities (LLCs), which encourage students of like minds to share their interests. For example, the Arts and Technology LLC hosts movie screenings, art competitions, parties, and networking events where students can meet with arts and technology professors. Students in the Social Sciences LLC have volunteered for the Innocence Project, participated in the Mock Trial Team, and attended informal dinners with faculty members.
