Richardson, Texas: Telecom Corridor and University of Texas at Dallas
Though it’s just 20 minutes north of the Dallas city center, Richardson boasts an economy and a university all its own. More than 5,000 businesses operate within the city limits, many on Main Street, located downtown. A slew of international companies, including some of the world’s largest⎯such as AT&T, Verizon, and Samsung⎯have offices in the aptly named Telecom Corridor, a 25-million-square-foot technology business center.
Less than five minutes away from the Hilton, the University of Texas at Dallas is a highly regarded research university home to more than 50 research centers and institutes. For an in-depth look at the campus, schedule a guided tour with the school, or take a self-guided tour that goes past the student union, the new Student Services Building, and the 3.5-billion-year-old rock outside the Founders Building.
