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).

The UT Austin campus is very easy to navigate. The football and soccer stadiums are state of the art. You have the art museum, The Tower, LBJ Library, Driscoll Center right on campus. Amazing

If you've never been to Austin on Game Day your missing out! The atmosphere and friendliness at The University of Texas is unmatched. One of the prettiest and tradition rich Universities in the nation. The 40 Acres and DKR are a must visit.

The main 40 is so beautiful. The campus is spread around Austin so it is a bit of a walk. Not recommended in August. Way too hot.

My visit to the UT site was limited to a trip up the UT Tower for the panorama. Visitors are escorted to the tower, and back down again, so there is a time-limit to how long you can spend - although the time was perfectly adequate. For me, Austin doesn't have the greatest panorama (apart from the Capitol building). That,... More
