UT is a beautiful walking campus scattered with public art installations. Go to their website and search for Landmarks which is what they call their art installation program. You can see all sorts of really intersting pieces.

The flagship university of the UT system and right in the center of the city, what a place to study at! The UT Tower may be the most famous structure of Austin, even rivaling the State capitol!

Taking the local bus to visit the LBJ museum I got to walk through the campus by it's stadium. I guess they are into football for some reason. :-)

We had an amazing experience visiting UT Austin for a long weekend. My middle daughter is interesting in possibly attending here and we were blown away by the kindness, professionalism, and quality of our overall experience. I recommend scheduling a tour before your visit.

Full disclosure, I'm a little prejudiced as my daughter graduated from UT. The campus is beautifully compact and on site parking is non existence.

Just got the quick driving tour, but got to see a lot of the campus. Great maintained grounds and landmarks on campus were impressive. My favorite part was how close it was to a strip of restaurants and shops.
