UT Tyler

The University of Texas at Tyler Residence Life

On-Campus Housing and Dining


UT Tyler is home to more than 1,400 resident students who live in Ornelas Hall, Patriot Village, University Pines or Eagle's Landing.

Located on campus, all four housing facilities are conveniently a few minutes' walk from your classes, the library, student center and recreational facilities. Each housing facility is designed especially with UT Tyler students in mind and offers first-class living arrangements.

UT Tyler Residence Life takes each student's safety very seriously and provides staff members on call 24 hours a day. In addition, university police patrol the buildings multiple times day and night.

Students who have completed fewer than 60 credit hours at any junior college or university, including UT Tyler, are required to live on campus.
