The University Center & The Commons


UTA Student Centers

New UC

The E.H. Hereford University Center is UT Arlington's central hub for student life, providing essential services. Despite its importance, growth over four decades has strained its capacity to meet rising demands. Upgrading and expanding facilities for events, lounges, food services, and student organizations is vital. This effort is key to ensuring a promising future for Mavericks. 

University Center

It features several dining locations, a USPS mail center, plus meeting and ballroom spaces. The University Center is the best place to get involved and make lasting memories on campus. Just remember, it's all HERE!

The Commons

West Campus has a new center for student life in The Commons, which opened Fall 2018. Dining options at The Commons include the all-you-care-to-eat Maverick Café and Starbucks. The Commons also offers group meeting rooms, study and lounge areas, and more.

Brazos Park

Opened in 2019, Brazos Park introduced a refreshing addition to the University Center Mall, offering a lush area suitable for hosting events and concerts, as well as a serene spot to unwind amidst nature while gearing up for upcoming exams.
