Student services

The Office of Student Conduct is committed to upholding the University of Tampa's Spartan Code. The values of honesty, fairness, trust, respect, responsibility, personal wellness and citizenship are promoted and expected from all students. 

Housing services

Each new residential student must have a $200 housing application fee on file when the housing application is completed and submitted.

Library services

The University of Tampa's library opened Oct. 19, 1969, and was originally named in honor of the late St. Louis industrialist, Merl Kelce, whose donation made the construction possible. It was re-named the Macdonald-Kelce Library in 1999 because of the generosity of the Macdonald Family Foundation whose contribution will transform the facility into a state-of-the-art information resource center. 

ICT services

Basic cable is operational in all residence halls. The service provider is Spectrum.

Medical services

Full-time undergraduate and all international students pay a mandatory student health fee each semester. This provides for full use of the Dickey Health and Wellness Center, which includes health, counseling and wellness services.

Student Life

Campus life

The University of Tampa provides many lifestyle options. While every effort is made to accommodate all new and returning students who request housing, beginning in Fall 2016, new UT students will receive priority for on-campus residential assignments. Austin, McNeel Boathouse, McKay, Morsani, Smiley and Vaughn Center will all be designated as first-year residence halls. Depending on the first-year student class size, Brevard may also be used for some first-year students. 

Sports facilities

The Wellness Center is committed to fostering a healthy campus environment by empowering students to reach their full potential through increasing awareness of factors and resources that are associated with a holistic approach to wellness. By focusing on physical, emotional, social, spiritual, intellectual, environmental, occupational and financial wellness, students are educated on positive lifestyle choices and supported in their efforts for self-care in order to achieve and maintain optimal levels of wellness.

Student clubs

Our students distinguish themselves by taking an active role in campus life and the community. Motivated to "make a difference" or simply to make friends, you'll find more than 200 clubs and organizations, including four major student publications, academic recognition societies, peer education groups, community service organizations, student government, Greek life, special interest and leadership groups, nationally recognized ROTC programs and top-ranked NCAA Division II sports.


AACSB accredited.

Overall a fantastic education

Although it is true that Ecuador's universities help to have a base, having an experience abroad will even help encourage other students or health professionals to seek experience, but above all, constant training makes patients confident.
