Most of the Indian students stay at Varsity Place apartments as the rent is economical and they share their apartments with their friends.

Getting Settled

We have an Indian Student Association at UT Tyler and the board members of ISA help new Indian students in settling down.

Any openings for student workers or graduate assistants will be posted in Patriot Jobs. You will need to create an id and password in order to apply. You will also need to get your cover letter and resume approved and apply for the job.
