URES aims to connect undergraduate students who are interested in the diverse and exciting industry of commercial real estate. Whether you have no previous real estate experience, or you are a senior looking for a full-time opportunity after graduation, URES is for you. We strive to provide our members valuable knowledge, relationships, and professional opportunities in the commercial real estate world.
URES was founded in 2011 with the goal of connecting undergraduate students at UT Austin to commercial real estate jobs. We work in coordination with the Texas Real Estate Center (TREC) to organize, educate, encourage, and assist undergraduate students with future careers in real estate.
Texas Real Estate Center: recruiting and education, professional connections with real estate professionals (i.e. career fairs, networking events, and recruiting related activities)
Undergraduate Real Estate Society: informal networking, intra-university connections (i.e. socials, networking with recent graduates/upperclassmen, etc.)
After taking the URES curriculum or serving on the URES board, our members have gone on to achieve success at companies around the nation.
The Real Estate Center takes students on various trips each year to visit companies and significant development projects in multiple cities in Texas, across the US, and beyond, including Houston, Dallas, and New York City.
