Around by car

We just go around by car and take a couple of pictures, but the buildings are beautiful, and the area is very big.

I come to visit the campus every now and then since friend's attending graduate school at this institute. Very nice campus and a leader in academic research (recently ranked #19 in the world for high impact research according to Nature). The campus itself is sprawling so if you plan to visit the area, be sure to stay close to it.... More

Austin is home of the University of Texas at Austin, the Longhorns! Very nice campus with tons of kids going from classes to classes. The LBJ Library is located on this campus and that is an attraction I'd strongly recommend for everyone (all ages!) to see!

Although UT was far from our hotel, it was worth the cab ride out. If you've never been to a huge campus, definitely walk through and take some time to check out the buildings and the clock tower. Also, the stadium is unreal.

The University of Texas in Austin might be one of the most beautiful campuses I've visited. There is so much history and pride when you walk around campus and the people are very friendly. We just walked around only a portion but I would have loved to see the whole thing. We primarily walked around the college of business at... More

Potential freshman university tour was informative but it was 112 degrees! (Not their fault, I know) Arrive very early for your appointment as the area is overrun with construction & closed streets. Parking is expensive! There were no shows, games, or activities when we were there.

Beautiful campus, we always enjoyed visiting here while our nephew was attending UT. Lots of great eating places around (see other reviews) Easy to get into and out of, except game day and graduation, suggestion for that is stay at a hotel close (book early, they sell out) that has a shuttle service around the area. Brother-in-law and his wife... More

The University of Texas main campus is a beautiful campus to visit. There is lots of rich history. This campus holds many great events along with a college home game experience like no other. The campus is near the Capitol and makes combing the two into an easy visit. There are lots of things to see on campus including the... More
