Project Vision Statement 

The University Center (UC) is the HUB of student life at UT Arlington. Students, faculty, staff, and visitors enjoy a wide range of services that promote and contribute to student success.  Due to the unprecedented growth over the past forty years, the UC is unable to meet current student demands for event and lounge space, food service, and space dedicated to student organizations.  Upgrading and expanding these vital services is the next step in building – future Mavericks.
