Brazos House is located close to the Business Building, The UTA Bookstore, The E.H. Hereford University Center, University College and much more!
With rich Texas History this uniquely quaint community is a huge hit with our students. Brazos (originally designed as an army barrack) is the second oldest building on campus, constructed in 1936. Brazos was the very first residence hall in the state of Texas to offer co-educational living. Brazos' unique history and tradition lend to it a distinctive character and welcoming atmosphere.
As the smallest of the five residence halls, housing 96 residents (consisting of 47 men and 49 women), Brazos is known for its sociable and family-like environment. Residents living in Brazos return year after year, giving the hall the highest return rate. Brazos residents as far back as the 1940's still drop by to visit the "55-room mansion"!
Residents can find everything they need on the first floor: a bustling lobby, TV lounge, washer and dryers, a quiet 24 hour study lounge and computer lab, main office and a community kitchen where something is always cooking! Brazos provides a "home away from home" atmosphere that will make your time at UTA both successful and enjoyable, offering endless college memories!
Room and Ramp Features
Brazos is organized vertically rather than horizontally. There are four vertically ascending ramps (A, B, C & D). Each ramp is comprised of four small floors, with just two sets of rooms, adjoined by a bathroom, on each floor. The furniture in Brazos is not stationary and, therefore, allows for more room personalization.
Hall Staff & Involvement
Brazos House has student Resident Assistants living in the building as well as a professional Graduate Residence Director. The main office is staffed by friendly Office Assistants and offers many amenities including board games, sports equipment, kitchen utensils, pots and pans, tools and vacuum cleaners.
Resident Assistants live in the building serving as resources to all of the Brazos Residents. The RAs thrive on building a strong sense of community through floor/building programs, which bring the residents together for both social and educational purposes.
Brazos boasts an active Hall Council, the governing body that plans fun social events as well as provides a forum in which to address resident concerns and issues. Brazos Hall Council has accomplished such things as voting the Bulldog as the official Brazos mascot, having a community kitchen installed and each year the Hall Council takes a vote to re-instate ZOO hours, one hour every other week in which residents can be as loud as they wish immediately following Hall Council meetings!

Rubbing Hereford's Head
Legend has it that students will perform better on tests if they rub the head of E.H. Hereford’s statue on the first floor of the University Center.
