About UT Tyler

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
  • Services – Economical rates, free on-campus parking, 24-hour security, full-service catering, on-site AV support, free Wi-Fi, copy services center, bookstore and Robert R. Muntz Library
