Nicknamed the “Forty Acres” after the size of the university’s original 1883 footprint, The University of Texas at Austin’s main campus is a 431-acre urban oasis in the heart of the capital city of Texas. Campus is home to landmarks like the Tower at the heart of campus or the Perry-Castañeda Library with over 70 miles of book stacks. Discover the creativity of the Blanton Museum of Art and the exterior installation from Ellsworth Kelly, "Austin."

Explore our opportunities to learn more about campus and what makes life great on the Forty Acres. We are excited to showcase a few ways that you can get a peek at Longhorn life.
