Looks like an industrial park.The parking is poor and the school is simply ugly with no architectural imagination.

Love this place! So much history, the buildings are beautiful! Make sure to bring your camera, there are so many photo opportunities. Go after 5pm, it is less crowded and not as hot. Brought my kids and they were so impressed, it truly motivated them for college. So proud to have called UT home for four years.

They pack 100,000 people in to the place. It was loud, but not overwhelming. Probably because BYU played so well. The opposite stands were empty in the 4th Q.

I attend law school here, but I can tell you that everyday I learn something new about the history of the campus, and even if you are just touring the campus you can checkout places like the turtle pond, visit the tower, bowl, purchase some awesome burnt orange gear, and take in the atmosphere. If you're really lucky come by... More

Everyone was so nice and festive in getting ready for the big game. Until my visit, I didn't even follow college football .. go Longhorns!

This is a site to be seen. It's gigantic and worth walking around. Unfortunately it was really hot the day we went here so we didn't see the whole thing but it is something you must do while in Austin.

I loved everything in this trip. Austin is a lovely city and so is the people. The live music feature is great and good quality. You will never get bored in Austin.

Walking around U of T Austin, one feels slightly jealous of those who have the privilege of calling this city home during their college years. Though the heat may be oppressive, Austin is a wonderful city and its iconic college is well worth a walking tour.

My mates and I took the guided tour around campus, as we were really intrigued by the whole American college experience (being from Australia). It is really intended for prospective college students but they were happy to have us join and it was really interesting & informative. The tour starts at their visitors centre, which is off campus and right... More
