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.
Recently admitted high school seniors may register for an on-campus walking tour. Advance registration is required and same-day reservations are not available for on-campus tours.
Take a 360° look at some of our most beloved campus spots on this virtual tour.
The Admissions Welcome Center, which opened in 2020, is located on the ground floor of the Perry-Castañeda Library (PCL).
The Admissions Welcome Center is closed and will resume offering tours to newly admitted students in the spring semester. Tour dates for spring are now available.
How she’s changing the world
