the university of tampa has a small but beautiful and convenient campus located in the heart of tampa. the small class sizes and wide variety of activities and clubs available to students make it very easy to get to know other students. in addition to great academic programs, ut also creates wonderful events for students to relax and enjoy everything the university has to offer.
Rachael from Belgium
The University Tampa is In a great location right by the river and minutes away walking from downtown Tampa. There are so many activities right on campus from sororities/fraternities to the pool and hammocks right by the river, not to mention all that downtown Tampa offers. In terms of schooling, the professors are very available and open to office hours or extra help which is one of the great advantages of this school!
Sarah from Wethersfield, CT
I love it here, however I have two complaints; the wifi sucks and the workers at the Academic Success Center aren't always the best at doing their job. Besides that the university offers a variety of things to get involved in both academically and non-academically. The student body is filled with many friendly people that makes it easy to make friends only if you're willing to do so.
Romelo from Brooklyn, NY
The University of Tampa is a diverse school filled with people from all over the world. The academics and teachers are great. The campus is beautiful.
Student
The University of Tampa is one of the most beautiful campuses and has an amazing scenery. The Campus offers many things to choose from and has lots of things to do considering it is in downtown Tampa and not far from Orlando attractions. I love the fact that the school is very diverse and most of the students that attend the University is International and out of State Students.
