About:

The University of Texas is one of the largest and respected Universities in the US. Sports Illustrated ranked UT as America’s Best Sports College” in 2002, and there is always a game to see somewhere on the 40 Acres.

Tips:

  • Football tickets are expensive and often hard to come by. If you don’t care who they are playing, try for a non-conference game. Additionally, save money and hassle by attending any of the other sports for a fraction of the cost. We recommend Men/Womens Basketball, Baseball, Softball, Volleyball, or Woman’s Soccer. All are quite fun.
  • Tower Tours are available and offer a great view of downtown. We suggest calling and reserving ahead of time.
  • The Frank Erwin Center is houses everything from UT Basketball to Ringling Brothers Circus. Check out their site often for the latest events.
  • UT is home to several museums. We suggest checking out the rotating archives at the Ransom Center, which includes an original Gutenberg Bible and the Watergate Files. There is also the LBJ Presidential Library, The Blanton Museum of Art, and the Texas Natural Science Center.
  • The Performing Arts Center is a great way to see broadway shows year round.
