What are some good study spots?
UT has many hidden nooks to study in. You can find study rooms on almost every floor of residence halls, the library, Starbucks, Martinez center, even the gym! Check out our blog that lists the top 10 places to get work done off UT’s campus!
What are the class sizes?
Since the University of Tampa is a smaller school, the class size average is between 20-30 people. You might run into some general lectures where there are max 60 students, but the number does not go higher than that.
The smaller classes allow students to form a stronger bond with their professors and one another, make it easier to focus, and helps give a more personalized experience!
What are the COVID-19 protocols on campus?
UT has implemented a Spartan Shield Safety Plan to ensure all students, faculty, and staff can feel comfortable in their health and well-being. You can learn more about the University of Tampa’s conduct here.
How are the dorms set up?
University of Tampa offers spacious dorms and no communal bathrooms for all on-campus students! Depending on your building, room plans may vary. Freshmen typically live in a double or triple room and sophomores live in singles. Almost all rooms are suite-style with 3-4 roommates.
