We know our students didn’t achieve the academic successes that got them admitted to UT Arlington on their own. They had the support of parents and family members like you. Let us be the first to congratulate you on your student’s admission. 

The Maverick Family

Your student joins a Maverick Family that consists of more than 38,000 students, 5,000 faculty and staff members, and 150,000 alumni. Together we make an impact on the community, our state, and the world. How big of an impact? Very big. Our students volunteer more than 400,000 hours in the community each year, and our annual economic impact on the State of Texas exceeds $13 billion. That’s a bigger impact than hosting the Super Bowl every month of the year. 

Don’t worry, you’re a part of that family now too. Our Parent and Family Center and events like Parent and Family Weekend make sure you stay just as active in our community as your student. 

Living on Campus

More than 5,000 students live on UT Arlington’s campus in our residence halls and apartments. Another 10,000 students live within a 10-mile radius. Now that your student is admitted, it’s time to consider their housing options, if you haven’t done so already. 

Student Life

Your student will be engaged in the classroom, working with award-winning faculty to learn things that will help them advance their careers in ways they haven’t even imagined. But they won’t spend all their time in the classroom. Studies show that students who are engaged on campus perform better than their peers who are not involved. Help your student get involved in 300+ student organizations, undergraduate research, or an on-campus job.
