Real Residents Speak About Living in Whitis Court
"Whitis Court is an awesome community. You get to bond with so many people by watching movies together, walking together at night and just by having light conversations. As an international student, I was not too sure how well I would make friends here because UT Austin is such a big university. However, when you are in Whitis, you WILL make friends!"
Joanne Kim, Spanish major
"When I moved into Whitis Court, I was in love with how much closet space I had. I met most of my fellow Whitis residents within a week and after two weeks it was like I was already in a family. You don't get this immediate connectedness in the larger residence halls. The courtyard and large balconies are accessible to everyone and the pool and ping pong tables in LLA are also a great way to spend your time."
Mercedes Wood, Mechanical Engineering major
"Of all the residence halls at UT, Whitis Court is unique in its design and propensity for unity among all residents. The different buildings allow for smaller groups of students to meet one another and become close family units. Everyone here is encouraged to come out of our rooms and buildings to explore and meet new people. Whitis Court is a friendly, open-minded, and accepting community. The residents here create a family feeling that is unlike anything we have previously experienced."

A Bit of History
In 1999 Housing and Food bought back two co-ops from a private company managing them to begin The Living Learning Halls. By May 2003 UT bought all of the co-op houses and transformed them to the Living Learning Hall program with each building called LLA, B, C, etc. This community is currently known as Whitis Court.
