Student Life


You might think the UTEP campus is so big that it should have its own zip code. It is and it does. But one of the first things you'll notice when you arrive is that the many options, amenities, and recreational and learning opportunities offered here make the campus feel smaller.

Whether you're seeking study skills, participation in a favorite sport or activity, a delicious meal, outings to explore the region's spectacular natural beauty, help with family or personal issues, opportunities for social interaction, a safe and comfortable place to live, or information about your education and career options, you'll be in good hands during your years at UTEP. And you'll have fun, too.

Life at UTEP is relatively quiet, but never boring. Here are some of our annual activities we encourage our engineering majors to remember.
