Admissions Welcome Center

The Rox, Duke and Danay Covert Admissions Welcome Center serves as the front door to the university for prospective students and their families. Located on the ground floor of the Perry-Castañeda Library in the heart of campus, the center showcases the impact of a UT Austin educational experience and offers students a window into campus life. While in the center, check out a vibrant mural by Austin artist Judy Paul and see the Vo Family Auditorium, established by global businessman and proud Texas Ex Andrew Phong Vo, who founded the Texas Iron Spikes.
