UT at Austin could use an overall upgrade. All of the buildings resembled an outdated hospital or a prison. The weirdest part was that there was no Bookstore!? Not one place where we could go purchase some UT memorabilia to take home to our families....More

Just a great college campus, surrounded by the vibrant City of Austin. Beautiful old oaks and grand old buildings mixed with some new architecture. Enjoy a stroll around campus or stop into the Texas Union for food/drink/entertainment.

Pretty much integrated into the surrounding neighborhood with typical college "strip" along Guadalupe. Unless there is some specific reason to visit the campus (thinking of applying etc.) a quick drive by is sufficient.

Much has changed over the years, but a lot remains the same (thank heavens). Traffic's terrible though. Best to park behind the Co-op and walk over and through the campus. Take your time; and go when you can book tours of the campus landmarks.

The afternoon passes by so quickly and there is something for everyone. The family really enjoyed the water room, but be prepared to deal with the water. It will feel wonderful when you go outside on a hot day!

Kind of hard to review the University. The grounds are nice, the stadiums are nice, one of the top 10 schools in the country. However, if you plan on attending good luck with the heat. It’s almost impossible to attend a football game before it...More

I remember the news and the horrible 1966 massacre. I wanted to see the clock tower myself. It is a beautiful monument on campus, but it brings chills. This is only one aspect of campus. It is a beautiful place. We ate in a cafeteria...More

My son applied and was accepted at four great Texas Universities, Texas Tech in Lubbock, UT Dallas, UT Austin, and Texas A&M College Station. We toured all four as a team. UT Austin's tour was questionable. The tour guide was a little too much (over...More
