What to Know About a Great Texas University

The University of Texas at Tyler is part of the prestigious University of Texas System that includes 14 institutions located throughout the state. Founded in 1971, UT Tyler today enrolls nearly 10,000 students and consists of six colleges.

Our beautiful Tyler campus features more than 200 acres nestled along a lake and surrounded by thick pine and oak forests, providing a picturesque location for study and recreation. For student convenience, we also maintain regional campuses in Palestine and Longview, as well as a location in Houston.

With more than 80 bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs offered, UT Tyler provides a wealth of learning opportunities and dynamic programs.

Most UT Tyler classes are taught by professors, not teaching assistants, and our average student-professor ratio of 19:1 is a definite advantage over larger, less intimate campuses. Our learning environment is truly student-centered: We offer private university quality at affordable public university prices.

We encourage you to visit campus and see for yourself why UT Tyler is where you’ll feel at home—and find your best path.
