The UTD Plinth (Fancy Fountain)
The UTD Plinth, also known as the university quad/mall, features the famous fancy fountain, tons of growing vines, a view of the UTD Reflection Pools, and a circular pool of water in the center. It’s great for some portraits and even group photos.
UTD Reflection Pools
The UTD Reflection Pools are probably the university’s most popular attraction/view. Featuring over 150+ magnolia trees and 4 pool quadrants, the reflection pools are perfect for individual portraits and would make a great addition to your Instagram feed.
UTD Mall/University Walkway
The UT Dallas Mall during the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons offers a beautiful blooming scenery & background for your graduation & couple portraits.
UTD Spirit Rocks
The UTD Spirit Rocks feature 3 large rocks that the student body paints weekly, they’re sometimes a hit or miss – but typically feature a cute message about #UTDGrads during Commencement & Graduation Week.
UTD Academic Buildings
Some of the academic buildings on the UTD Campus make a GREAT background for your portraits & headshots! Highly recommend the Student Union, ATEC, JSOM, and ECSW Buildings.
UTD Texas Instruments Plaza
The UT Dallas Texas Instruments Plaza offers a cute always-active fountain, a great place to take a few portraits sitting down, touching the water, and walking across the fountain!
