Housing Provides Unique Living Communities
August 8, 2014
The University of Texas at Tyler offers exceptional on-campus living environments for students, Dr. Howard Patterson, vice president for student affairs, announced.
UT Tyler is home to more than 1,400 resident students who live in Ornelas Hall, Patriot Village, Eagle’s Landing and University Pines.
And UT Tyler students recognize the outstanding service and quality that is provided through consistent exit survey results.
“We are very proud of the positive response from our residents,” said David Hill, director of residence life and judicial affairs. “It’s such a compliment to our staff when they return year after year.”
Located on campus, all four housing facilities are conveniently a few minutes’ walk from classes, the UT Tyler Robert R. Muntz Library, University Center and recreational facilities. Each housing facility offers first-class living arrangements, and all four communities also have Wi-Fi available throughout the buildings.
“We now have enough on-campus facilities to reach a variety of students,” Hill added. “No matter where you are in your college career, we have a place to suit your needs.
The department also employs highly qualified students as resident assistants. RAs are the leaders of their communities and help to foster an atmosphere of healthy living and learning on campus. RAs collaborate with UT Tyler faculty and staff to increase awareness of university policy. UT Tyler campus police also provide a strong presence at all communities day and night.
Students interested in living on campus may find the housing application online and send by email, mail or fax. Move-in day for Ornelas Hall and Patriot Village is Thursday, Aug. 21. Fall 2014 classes start Monday, Aug. 25.
One of the 15 campuses of the UT System, UT Tyler features excellence in teaching, research, artistic performance and community service. More than 80 undergraduate and graduate degrees are available at UT Tyler, which has an enrollment of more than 7,500 high-ability students. UT Tyler offers courses at its campuses in Tyler, Longview and Palestine as well as a location in Houston.
