Food insecurity makes it hard for students to stay in class and succeed. According to the fall 2023 National College Health Assessment, 43.7% of UT students have experienced some form of food insecurity; and 19.7% of those students experienced very low food security. The UT Outpost food pantry provides nutritious food for students so that they can focus on their education. UT Outpost also helps students identify and combat food insecurity on campus.

The UT Outpost career closet offers every Longhorn access to professional clothes for job fairs, internships, and interviews. Students can choose their own outfits from the career closet, including shoes and accessories, that are theirs to keep.
