University of Texas at Dallas

Creating the Future

The University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) is a public research university located in Richardson, Texas,18 miles north of downtown Dallas. Founded in 1961 it started as a small college but has expanded to become a comprehensive institution, part of the University of Texas system, and ranked in the top 50 global universities under 50 years old.

With 25,000 students on campus (15k undergraduate) the modern campus boasts state-of-the-art facilities housed in late modern or postmodern architecture buildings, quite different from your traditional US campus. However a large scale campus Landscape Enhancement Project shows its commitment to the environment.

UT Dallas offers a comprehensive range of subjects, with Naveen Jindal School of Management being the largest (and one of the US's top ranked programmes). UT Dallas has c.300 clubs and societies, and a large sport programme (Comets) you can get involved with or support from the stands.

Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) area - one of the US's largest urban areas - is vibrant, dynamic and globally connected, offering entertainment venues, museums and art galleries along with places for outdoor running, biking, hiking and skating. But being on the doorstep of one the USA's largest cities Dallas offers a range of opportunities to experience Texan culture and for travel beyond (Fort Worth International Airport being one of the busiest in the US).
