University of Texas at Dallas

Richardson, Texas

THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT DALLAS (UTD) is booming in size, stature, and impact. As one of the top research universities in Texas, UTD offers some of the state’s most-lauded business, engineering, and science programs, while also providing a breadth of highly diverse educational paths across eight schools, including innovative and traditional programs in the liberal arts.

UTD’s diverse student body of nearly 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 also 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 added some four million square feet in new or renovated space and more than $1 billion in development. The newest campus structure, opened in 2020, is a 186,000-square-foot sciences building, featuring two large lecture halls and an open courtyard with green space and seating areas.
