University of Texas at Dallas

Richardson, Texas

THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT DALLAS (UTD) is booming in size and impact. As one of the top research universities in Texas, UTD offers lauded business, engineering, and science programs, while also providing a breadth of highly distinctive educational paths across seven schools.
A diverse student body of more than 30,000 benefits from academic rigor and social opportunities on a residential campus known for striking architecture and access to the Metroplex. The university benefits from the support of The University of Texas System and aligns with other institutions, corporations, and nonprofits to offer students an array of learning, service, and internship opportunities.
Undergraduates work with distinguished researchers, and many academic areas provide fast-track options that allow students to earn advanced degrees by taking graduate-level courses while earning a bachelor’s degree. High-performing students can apply to one of several programs within the Hobson Wildenthal Honors College dedicated to promoting excellence in undergraduate education.
In the past decade, UTD invested more than $1 billion in improvements. A 186,000-square-foot sciences building opened in 2020, featuring two large lecture halls and an open courtyard. With a planned opening in 2024, the O’Donnell Athenaeum will include a second location for the Crow Museum of Asian Art, a performance hall, and a planned museum for traditional arts of the Americas.
