More than 5,000 students call UT Arlington home during the school year, a number that is growing every day. In fact, today more students live in residence halls and on-campus apartments than at any time in the University’s history.
Vandergriff Hall and The Lofts at College Park, located inside College Park, are helping boost that statistic and continue the University’s effort to transform itself into a true residential campus. The advantages of cultivating this type of environment are clear: Research shows that students who live on campus are more likely to earn higher GPAs, complete their degrees on time, and even pursue advanced degrees.
Vandergriff Hall, named after former Arlington Mayor, Congressman, and Tarrant County Judge Tom J. Vandergriff, is a co-educational residential facility that houses 501 students and has a video game area, study gardens, and other fun features.
The Lofts at College Park provides apartment-style living to 100 students and offers modern features, free WiFi and cable TV, and more great amenities.
