Find out how we're helping new students and families get into a Longhorn State of Mind at summer orientation sessions.

The Division of Student Affairs is the hub of student life and well-being at The University of Texas at Austin. The team inspires all students — undergraduate, graduate and professional — to live the Longhorn life through its uniquely-designed programs, spaces and resources. They include physical health, mental health and well-being services; new student and family orientations; the University’s official parent association; recreational sports; and two university unions. The Division also supports 1,000+ student organizations; student governance organizations; student emergency, veteran and legal services; and student employment, internship and leadership programs. The team supports the whole student, from orientation through graduation, and collectively challenges every student to reach their life and academic goals through an enriched, rewarding and fun college experience.
