UT welcomes videographers and photographers on campus, but we don’t allow shoots to impede the normal functioning of campus or take place in private campus locations. Location agreements and other documents may be necessary prior to any shoot. Contact the Office of Public Information and Publications for guidelines.

4. Take Me to the Ballgame:

UT regularly produces quality theater, dance and music productions featuring UT students and faculty. Many are free; all are reasonably priced. Check the calendar, and enjoy UT’s performing arts.

7. When it Rains:

It’s usually sunny in Tampa, but not always. Tropical weather can hit fast. If you hear UT’s Thor Guard lightning alert, it’s time to seek shelter…and hope you brought an umbrella.

8. Food for Thought:
