The clock tower is quite impressive. The football stadium is very cool. The LBJ Library, the outdoor athletic facilities, and the Arts area were very worth seeing too. I really liked talking to some of the students, very nice young people. You will enjoy walking thru the campus.

I always enjoy visiting college campuses, as it can be quite inspirational and energizing. This is a nice and lively campus. The architecture is pretty good, I enjoyed the clock tower and the fountain which dominate central campus. We were there on game day which only made the atmosphere better.

Loved walking through the campus, it may be the prettiest college I've ever walked through! Besides the scenery, the LBJ Library and natural science museum are on site which are both worth seeing. The tower on campus is also suppose to be worth going to, but it was open the day I visited. I definitely recommend taking a walk through... More

My Granddaughter was accepted by ABT for ballet intensive which was held at U of Texas Austin this past July. The stage & performance was first rate. We truly enjoyed our time spent there.

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.
