Surviving Mid-terms at UT


I hope this article finds you all doing well and thriving here on campus! Midterms have already begun so I thought I would share some resources that have helped me in previous semesters! 


Study/Learning Resources

Sanger Learning Center  

Sanger offers FREE services to enrolled students:

– Tutoring with peer academic coaches or learning specialists

– Group or one on one tutoring

– Public Speaking Support

Online Self-Guided Support

– Workshops & more! 


The University Writing Center 

UWC can be incredibly helpful in ensuring your writing fulfills the requirements of the prompts, is grammatically correct, thorough enough, and more! 

Noteworthy: You can schedule an appointment for a paper due the same day! They ask that you do not schedule an appointment for an essay that’s due in less than 2 hours. 


Longhorn Center for Academic Excellence

Like Sanger, the Longhorn Center for Academic Excellence offers one on one and drop-in tutoring. LCAE also provides writing support & workshops as well as several other programs to help students from a diversity of backgrounds. 


Study Spaces

UT Libraries

Many of the UT libraries offer quiet spaces to get work done, but did you know you can reserve a room for group study sessions in the PCL? The PCL is usually open 24 hours a day, so you can study whenever works best for you!


The PCL isn’t the only library on campus. The Life Science Library and the Architecture Library both come highly recommended as they are cozy, quiet, and roomy! 


Co-op Recommended

In 2017, The University Co-op Blog provided students with handy suggestions. One of my favorite tips is mentioned at the end of the article; empty classrooms can be utilized by students assuming no one else has reserved the room. As the article states, just be courteous and leave the room as you found it. Be sure to check specific building policies in case there are any exceptions. 


24 Hour Coffee Shops and Restaurants

I don’t recommend pulling an all-nighter if you can help it, but sometimes we have to study late! Follow the link above for some great places to get a bite or have a cup of Joe! My favorites for working on homework include Epoch and Bennu! 


Feeling Stressed?

Get a Massage!

There is a fee for utilizing massage services, but there are a variety of options and price points available! You can get a chair massage starting at $15 or a table massage starting at $35. They also offer pregnancy and Thai table massages, too! 




Sometimes it just helps to connect with another person. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or just need space to vent, I encourage you to visit the UT Counseling and Mental Health Center in the Student Services Building.

If you are experiencing a crisis, please visit the link below to seek support and find resources!



MindBody Labs

MindBody Labs are available in the SSB, SAC, and Nursing School. The MindBody Labs are perfect for taking a nap, doing self-guided meditation, and a number of other things to help with your well-being. 


UT Nap Map! 

If you’re ever in need of a quick nap between classes or during your study break, you can visit this nap map to find a student-approved location for resting. Afterward, check out the microwave map so you can reheat leftovers and get back to studying!


Regardless of what you do, be sure you take time to breathe and take time to care for yourself!
