Big school, with some pretty sections, average research output, lots of Soviet era architecture. It may compete with SMU on academics, but it doesn't on facilites. Maybe that is why there is such a big $$ difference. :)

We toured the UT Austin sports headquarters and facilities at Darrel Royal Memorial Stadium. We were amazed and impressed with the extensive athletic offices, classrooms, laboratories, fan facilities, sky boxes, trophy rooms and an athletic camp for young boys.

The flagship school of the state of Texas, UT is a beautiful campus with new technology and old architecture. Check out the UT Tower (tallest building in the city), statues (MLK, Caesar Chavez, Barbara Jordan), the Turtle Pond, and the LBJ Law Library.

Took my daughter here for summer camp. The campus is over-whelming large and it is hard to grasp exactly how large it is until you get there. It is a beautiful campus and most of the security were friendly to us as we were trying to get un-lost driving around campus. If you are driving on campus there is NO... More

If coming to campus for first time, I would only start at the Corner of MLK Jr Blvd at the ATT Conference Center so you walk up to the Tower first thing. The campus is gorgeous but start at the front to really take... More

The sites include some with horrendous history, and others' with incredible generosity. Definitely worth a walking tour. Segway tours are offered, I believe...

We were able to walk around the campus and were even able to get close to the legendary football field! We looked through the fence to see the state of the art track and field facility and didn't know before arriving that the LBJ Library was on this campus! We would love to see a game here someday!

Workd at UT for 22 years as the chief recording engineer. If you want to hear some great music at a more thatn reasonable price, this is the place. They've got a few good sports teams too if you like that. Libraries, they got em. Great ones. Nice campus too, but brink your walkin shoes. Hook Em!
