UT Permian Basin, an academic institution of The University of Texas System, is a growing and vibrant four-year university offering bachelors and masters degrees.
Filling a niche as the only four-year University for Odessa, Midland — and surrounding rural areas — enrollment is about 3500, attracting students from over 130 Texas Counties. Dependent on the oil industry for many years, the local chambers of commerce are attracting diverse businesses to the area. In the past years, a flourishing retail boom brought in many restaurants, and shopping centers to Midland and Odessa. Museums, theaters, a symphony, golf courses, a Texas League AA professional stadium, football stadiums, ice hockey, a polo club, international airport, and other metropolitan attractions are all within minutes of the University. The semi-arid grassland climate averages 300 days of sunshine a year, boasts wide-open spaces and spectacular sunsets. Even better than the sunny climate is that positive “can-do” attitudes abound.

Its faculty is engaged in a wide range of research attracting millions of dollars in grants for programs in teacher certification, energy research, and groundbreaking work in many disciplines.
