Fantastic school with a beautiful campus in the heart of Austin. Worth a walk through if you're staying nearby.

University of Texas campus is HUGE and full of moving people. Makes it challenging to drive around. Finding a parking space is challenging. We finally gave up after pulling into several spots, only to read the signs and find some reason we're not allowed to park in that space. Plan ahead and find out where you can park. I did... More

We visited the campus on an extensive walking tour as part of a college trip. UT is a beautiful campus in the heart of Austin and worth going to see some of the iconic areas like the clock tower if you are in the area. Parking available in the garage at 25th and San Antonio St. for visitors.

We were on our way to LBJ Presidential Library and Museum but thoroughly enjoyed our saunter through UT's campus. There are some wonderful spots for seeing Austin. Don't miss the infamous clock tower. Head up to the LBJ Library above the hill at the stadium and performing arts center. There's a lovely garden up there and a fantastic view of... More

Took the kids for a day of adventure on the campus of UT. The kids engaged in experiments, got to tour an awesome university and meet some of the students. We spent about 4 hrs and only touched the surfaced. Can't wait to go back

I love visiting universities where ever I travel and this one was special. All Austins is special to be honest :) They embrace diversity and other cultures, for example the library of the university is named after a latino. You can actually get into all the faculties, the library, the gym. Lots of nice people all over the place that... More

This is the best public university site you will ever visit. They must have unlimited money. Every building is beautifully built and maintained perfectly.

Ran through here in early morning to run around the football stadium from my hotel. The campus is definitely not flat so it was a good run as far as difficulty goes. The campus is very pretty and the stadium was fun to see. There were even some players in there fielding punts in the early AM.

If you want to experience the view from the UT tower be sure to call ahead, I guess you have to make a reservation. This is not well publicized so beware or you could be disappointed like we were. Hope you get there

Recently was able to return to walk across my beloved UT campus as a returning graduate from over 30 years ago. Hanging out on the mall near the Union, out by the Tower, stop in the museums, it is all great!
