What Students Are Saying

3.51 Average Rating
The food at campus is reasonably varied and readily available. There are franchises such as Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Quizno's, etc, plus small coffe shops and lunch stores at almost every biulding.
Miguel from El Paso, TX
Living in the UTEP dorms has been an incredible journey. The safety is highly dependable since we use our registered school ID's to access doors. No one can get in unless the student allows them in, and the scenery everyday is remarkable. The dorm I'm living at haa s beautiful sunset views from outside and from the rooms themselves. It feels like a community together, we always have workshops and events to attend and bond with other roommates. I have never had a problem and the vibes felt are kind and understanding. It is definitely one place I recommend and encourage to live at.

The food has a lot of variety.
Miriam from El Paso, TX
There are a lot of food options on and around campus, and they all have good food, including some of the bigger chain restaurants like Starbucks, Pizza Hut, and Chick-Fil-A, but I find that most places on campus are quite expensive. Also, there aren't as many places that offer healthy food.
