Touring Our Communities
GUIDED HOUSING TOURS
University Housing strongly encourages anyone interested in living in a residence hall or an apartment to register for a tour through the University Welcome Center. The Daily Campus Tour registration form includes the option to sign up for a Campus Tour, Housing Tour, or both. The Housing Tours feature rooms in Lipscomb North, Kalpana Chawla, and Vandergriff Residence Halls, and one and two bedroom apartments in the Meadow Run community. The walking tours are led by UT Arlington’s student Housing Ambassador tour guides and last approximately an hour and a half.
Housing Tours are offered Monday – Friday at 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. and an additional combined Housing and Campus Tour is offered on Saturday mornings.
University Housing also features several Preview Day events throughout the year where students interested in living on campus can tour many of UT Arlington’s on-campus communities.
SELF-GUIDED APARTMENT TOURS
If you are interested in seeing a specific apartment community that is not offered on the Housing Tour, self-guided tours are available by visiting the University Housing office located in the University Center. If vacant units are available in the desired community, a key will be checked out for you to tour at your own pace. These self-guided tours are available Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. University Housing encourages you to call ahead at 817-272-2791 to find out if a vacant room is available in the specific community you are interested touring.
LIVING ON CAMPUS
As the smallest of the five residence halls, housing 96 residents (47 men and 49 women), Brazos is a historic landmark to our campus and 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 1940s still drop by to visit the “55-room mansion.”
