Wow what a campus

Blown away by the size and layout of this campus. Did a quick drive/walk through and saw some amazing public art. Really shows the charm and flavor of being in TX!

UTA has a lot of history. Its where Austin City Limits was taped for decades (they've since moved) and is a great place to take in the collegiate life with nearby restaurants and shops on 24th and Guadalupe etc.

Well we love the University, and we love Austin, but the nightmare on move-in day was inexcusable! It is hard to imagine that the City Counsel of Austin Texas would not do more to make it a wonderful experience for parents when they are moving their child into the dorm! Simply NO police presence, no blocked streets, nothing was done... More

The campus is huge and brings back memories of our days there 50 years ago. It is fun to identify the buildings and the places where we spent time in the past.

There is much to see on the UT campus. The LBJ library is certainly work a visit, as is the Harry Ransom Center. Many world class events are scheduled at the Bass Concert Hall, and, of course sports fans can find top rated athletic events throughout the year.

Rented bikes and headed up to the UT Austin campus. The campus itself is huge, but there is a lot of road traffic and it is very busy. The best view on campus is the main tower, which you can access by heading straight up Congress St north of the Capital. There is a lovely fountain and nice view of... More

This university is not only prestigious in the academic world but aesthetically beautiful. In the heart of Texas Hill Country, you are bound to find yourself walking among beautiful walking trails while having the option to dine at one of Austin's excellent restaurants.

Pretty campus to walk around. Highlight is LBJ Museum. Walking distance to Capitol. Also can see Clock Tower where Whitman shot 49 people in 1966.

We took a guided tour of the University, it was very informative and our guide was very knowledgeable. It was worth the time we spent to see the campus.
