Take A Tour Of The University Of Texas At Austin

The University of Texas at Austin, with its main campus no more than a mile away from the State Capitol of Texas, is the famous research university at the heart of Texas. As part of the University of Texas System, UT Austin is consistently well attended since its founding in 1883. In 2007, it had the fifth largest fall-season enrolment in the nation. In Texas, it holds the record for the largest enrolment amongst all the local colleges.

The university is noted for the J. J. Pickle Research Campus, an academic research center. In addition, there are other auxiliary facilities and programs that the university operates. Interested parties, students meaning to enroll, or tourists can go on campus walking tours to see the UT Austin for themselves. Aside from the regular day tours there is the nighttime Moonlight Prowl guided tour. Also available is the Tower Observation Deck Tour, taking place at the observation deck of the Tower, the university’s landmark. It is a premium to see the architecture, the construction, the interiors, for yourself.

Public art is a main attraction at the University of Texas at Austin campus. Landmarks is a collection of the finest public art-works on campus. Sculpture is a feature in the online Campus Statues Tour highlighting the more notable statues and other landmark sculptures in the campus.

Go back in time when you take the historic Main Building Tour either online, to sample the architecture, the sights and sounds, the personalities behind the making of the Main Building, or on an actual day tour of the building itself. With the Victorian-Gothic style of old being retained as much as possible, the new Main Building with its modern day tower is one hallmark of the campus you cannot afford to miss.

University of Texas in Austin also plays host to seventeen libraries, 7 museums, a football stadium, a Student Activities Center, the Gregory Gym, the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, the Blanton Museum of the Arts. Art, history, activity, all rolled into one. There can never be an idle time for the intellectually and physically aroused in the campus. There is KUT, a public radio station operated by the university to provide internet streaming audio and regular FM radio broadcasts.

If you really want to see everything there is to discover in the University of Texas at Austin, time your visit for the biggest Texan open house: the Explore UT yearly open house. Every year the university plays host to Texans to discover for themselves the wonders of the UT Austin Campus. From guided tours to special performances, from lectures to demonstrations, from interactive and other do-it-yourself activities, the Explore UT is one event that bares them all about the university.

The UT Austin campus sits on 3.4 square kilometers of land inclusive of the main campus and the research center campus in North Austin housing the J. J. Pickle Research. To get there, Capitol Metro provides regular bus transport, both for students and tourists in-campus and all around Austin.
