We know that safety is always at the forefront of a parent’s mind, and the university has implemented a range of crime prevention features to help keep our students safe. In addition to providing crime prevention programs, UT also offers free shuttle bus transportation throughout the night, an alert system notifying students of any active threats on campus, and well-lit walkways with emergency telephones. The university also has medical facilities and a counseling center to help students stay physically and mentally healthy.
The College of Architecture and Design Experience
We strive to provide and promote a culture founded on the qualities of respect, optimism, cooperation, collaboration, inspirational learning, engagement,and innovation. This is the foundation of our Studio Culture Policy. The studio being a unique environment different to what one might associate with the college experience – architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture students work in collaboration with each other in assigned groups. As such, it is a close knit community.
Parents may hear that pupils of the design disciplines study and work for long hours. This is true, but the college is committed to giving students balanced and healthy lives inside and outside the Art + Architecture Building.
