Set on an expansive, beautiful campus in the heart of Austin, UT is a sight to behold. Wander among the academic buildings across the grassy lawns to get a feel for college life at a major university. Visit the library, student union and the football stadium (if open) to appreciate the variety of activities in which undergraduate and graduate students... More

It is beautiful Lots of academic buildings surrounded by trees, grassy areas and lots and lots of various statues. Very nicely laid out. Friendly people. Everything is UT and that is understandable,... More

On Game day it was extremely hot and we arrived at 1;00PM. The game was at 6;30PM. There were many tailgates but there was nowhere one could buy... More

Interesting to walk around- but lots of walking! Architecturally interesting - Spanish Renaissance and good old square brick buildings - but everything is just big.

Had a wonderful walk thru my old university with all the special memories. It still felt very special for me. I would strongly recommend this University to any student as a stepping stone to your future.

We came to Austin for a football weekend and as the "visiting team" we were treated wonderfully! The campus was beautiful and the fans were warm and friendly. The stadium vibe was electric. Parking was decent but limited. A great experience even though we're didn't get the victory!

Came for the game. Loved the bigger than life atmosphere. Canons exploding, longhorn steer in the bullpen, marching bands, barbecue, and Cowboys! What could be better?
