What a gorgeous campus! You must visit the LBJ LIbrary, The Harry Ransom Centre and the Blanton Modern Art Museum. If it not too hot, pick up a guide to the sculptures on campus. If it is too hot, dip your feet in the creek that runs through the campus and sit under a live oak.

Although much of the university is in Austin proper it still has a "university" feel to it. The buildings and grounds are well maintained a quite lovely.

it was nice University but the best thing that I liked was the sign saying "no smoking on the campus" - excellent idea and more places should take a note of this

If you are a college football fan, or enjoy seeing universities, the campus is well laid out for a drive through. It's almost impossible to get into the stadium, but there are some observation points that allow a good look. The campus is blended with the city, so you might be unaware you have arrived without a map.

It was a nice place, a little dated, but clean and well maintained. Nothing too spectacular.The LBJ presidential Library is on campus and was interesting to visit.

I want to go to UT at A so I am a bit biased but this area is so eco-friendly and there are so many squirrels everywhere.

We bleed Burnt Orange in Austin, TX. UT's greatest asset is that it's huge and thus can afford all the great equipment and faculty and staff money can buy. That's also it's greatest drawback...too many people in one location sometimes. But, you get a big bang for your buck (although the State Legislature only gives like 11% of the budget,... More

I was going to skip this because it didn't sound interesting but I ended up there so I went ahead and walked around. What a nice campus! So much character. I'm really glad I went.

very pretty campus that overflows into the town. And I'm not a Tx fan! Nice place to walk around and walk the dog. (Take your poop bag).
