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!

We were quite disappointed after wandering around the grounds of UT. The campus came across as being very crowded, very few large green spaces and a lot of buildings and sidewalks clearly in need of repair. Earlier in the week we had visited both SMU in Dallas and Baylor in Waco and were far more impressed with those campuses. If... More

Our son treated us to a campus visit. We were amazed at the beautiful architecture in the buildings. When you see the buildings up close, you realize there are lots of details - especially up close to the rooflines. There are little courtyards spread throughout the campus. Some of the building materials used in the steps and walls have bits... More

Actually got down onto the field and took some great shots. I would recommend seeing the stadium, very impressive, indeed. campus is more of a city campus than... More

UT is a beautiful walking campus scattered with public art installations. Go to their website and search for Landmarks which is what they call their art installation program. You can see all sorts of really intersting pieces.

The flagship university of the UT system and right in the center of the city, what a place to study at! The UT Tower may be the most famous structure of Austin, even rivaling the State capitol!

This is a great place to take your kids. Explain what colleges are, what dorms are, what the history of the place is, show them the statues and fountains.
