As defined by the Texas Legislature, the official service area of EPCC is all of El Paso and Hudspeth Counties.
In fall 2014, enrollment was 23,079 (19,817 undergraduate and 3,262 graduate students). UTEP is the largest university in the U.S. with a majority Mexican-American student population (about 70%).
The El Paso, Texas, campus features a one-of-a-kind collection of buildings in the Bhutanese architectural style. The UTEP campus is located on hillsides overlooking the Rio Grande, with Juarez, Mexico, within easy view across the border.
Another notable feature of UTEP is its athletic history. UTEP was the first college in any Southern state in the United States to integrate its intercollegiate sports programs. To this date it is the only school in Texas to bring home an NCAA Men's Basketball Championship, which it achieved in 1966. The movie Glory Road recounts this story.
