Real Residents Speak About Living in Creekside
"Creekside has a very relaxed living atmosphere. The upstairs TV lounge is a great hub to meet people, watch sports or play games. The downstairs study area is also a must for late study nights."
Kaleb Ashton, Environmental Science junior
"Creekside is a place where I met some of my best friends; it's a place where friendships come to all who seek them."
Luis Mijares, Economics sophomore
"Unlike the rest of the residence halls, which are integrated within the heart of campus, Creekside is isolated like an island. However, the society that lies within Creekside is anything but isolated. Due to the solitary nature of our res hall, we interact with one another on a regular basis creating a unifying bond among the residents. Creekside stands as one, but consists of ideas from a diverse group of individuals."
Aneesh Soni, Electrical Engineering freshman
"Creekside is a niche place where you can meet all kinds of people. Its community is easily one of the best. Being a small residence hall of roughly 200 individuals, you're bound to see everyone at least once a day, and that's why I love living here. The lobby is best place to congregate and the RA staff are the friendliest I have ever seen."
Rohit Venugopal, Computer Science sophomore
A Bit of History
Creekside Hall, located at 2500 San Jacinto, is a tan brick with red tile roof building that opened June 1955. Creekside was considered a very modern building when it was built, as it was the first men's hall to have air conditioning. "When...opened in June, 1955, every feature of the rambling two story structure came as a result of intensive tests and surveys the University had run to find out what the University men wanted." (The Daily Texan 2/26/61). Creekside is the last all male residence hall at The University of Texas.
