Planning Your Event

The University of Texas at Tyler is a centerpiece for learning, culture and natural beauty in East Texas, located midway between Dallas and Shreveport, Louisiana. Founded in 1971, UT Tyler is one of the fastest-growing universities in the renowned University of Texas System.

Our beautiful 259-acre Tyler campus is nestled along a lake surrounded by thick pine and oak forests, wooded walking paths and a park-like environment providing a picturesque location for events. It is the perfect place to get away from it all while still enjoying the amenities expected at a well-equipped university.

These include:

  • Facilities – 1,008-bed capacity; 30,000-square-foot convocation center with chair-back seating for 2,000 and a custom sound system worthy of concerts; state-of-the-art performance facilities to include a full Broadway-sized stage and hydraulically-controlled orchestra pit floor
