About the Program

The Center for Students in Recovery (CSR) at The University of Texas at Austin was founded in 2004 and is a stand-alone progam within Student Affairs. We are located inside the Darryl K. Royal Memorial football stadium – the very heart of the UT Austin campus. The space includes a large meeting room, study room, and meditation room, and is open for drop-in hours Monday to Friday, 10am – 6pm while school is in session. On-campus recovery-supportive housing is available in the Healthy Lifestyles Living Learning Community. Our program has an open-door policy with no barrier to entry, but an application is required for the housing option.

We hold multiple weekly support group meetings, special events, fun sober social activities, scholarships each fall and spring semester, service opportunities, eduational opportunities, and engage in community-wide events. Please visit our website to view our full schedule of meetings, programming, and events. CSR works closely with many on- and off-campus resources, and is an active part of both the campus community and the greater Austin recovery community. There are now collegiate recovery centers at each University of Texas System academic institution. Please visit our website to contact the UT System campus nearest to you.

We welcome both prospective students and students enrolled at other schools to all of our meetings and activities. There is absolutely no barrier to entry, no minimum sobriety time, and no application process. Newcomers are welcome to participate fully in all CSR meetings and activities. The only requirement for membership is an interest in both recovery and pursuing a higher education.
