Discover what it means to be a Longhorn

Students ride bicycles past the Norman Hackerman Building on the UT Austin campus.

You embrace a challenge. You’re open to discovery. You want to change the world, for yourself and for others. And you’re not afraid to admit it.

Consider, then, a place committed to innovative learning and research—an environment that encourages creativity, analysis and critical thinking while working to find solutions to real-world problems. Imagine yourself on campus by exploring it with our 360 Virtual Tour. See yourself at the heart of a vibrant city that expands opportunities for learning—that is, when it’s not paying it forward or keeping it weird.

Become a part of a diverse community known around the world for its bold spirit of pride and competitiveness. Define your future as you realize you’re free to question ideas, pursue long-held passions and explore new interests—to redefine what’s possible.

Beyond Campus

Austin, Texas, is a city for the 21st century—diverse yet inclusive. Known for “keeping it weird,” it’s the 11th-largest city in the United States. Most importantly, it’s the place Longhorns (both near and far) call home.
