The Dan Dipert University Welcome Center offers prospective students, their families, and visitors a glimpse at all the University has to offer.
The 7,000-square-foot space features a 40-seat, circular theater with retractable glass walls that can be closed for special events or opened for presentations, as well as state-of-the-art electronic display boards and exhibits that tell the UT Arlington story. Other amenities include a visitors’ coffee bar, tour guide stations, and a shared courtyard with the adjacent Vandergriff Hall for students.
The Welcome Center is expected to attract more than 20,000 visitors a year. It was made possible in part by support from Dan Dipert, chief executive officer of Arlington-based Dan Dipert Travel & Transportation Ltd., and his wife, Linda (BBA ’01).
