THE UNIVERSITY AT TEXAS at Tyler’s vision is to be the primary educational and economic driver of East Texas, enriching the lives of students regionally and beyond. Students at UT Tyler enjoy a park-like campus with Harvey Lake at its center.

UT Tyler enrolls more than 7,000 undergraduates. The top three bachelor’s degree programs are nursing, mechanical engineering, and kinesiology. UT Tyler also offers four doctoral programs in nursing, nursing practice, pharmacy, and human resource development, and it incorporates trips abroad to integrate global content and real-world experiences.

About 1,700 students live on campus in four residence facilities. Ornelas Hall, which houses the most freshmen, is conveniently adjacent to the Patriot Center fitness and recreation facility. The expanded university center offers multiple food options, including Chick-fil-A and Subway, as well as a Barnes & Noble university bookstore. Some students enjoy outdoor recreational adventures such as mountain biking, triathlons, skydiving, sailing and rock climbing. The Greek system represents a small percentage of UT Tyler’s nearly 100 student organizations. Students also participate in organizations such as the Criminal Justice Student Association, Colleges Against Cancer, and the Black Student Association. Student athletes play on 17 men’s and women’s teams, and the university is moving from NCAA Division III to Division II membership.
