About this Site

The University of Texas at Austin introduced the current version of its home page in November 2010, following an extensive, community-based redesign process. University Communications and Information Technology Services led the project, in close collaboration with other campus groups. Read more about the Refresh project, which included redesigns for www.utexas.edu, utdirect.utexas.edu and m.utexas.edu


The University of Texas at Austin encourages the use of this site and other university sites as a way to share information and knowledge in support of the university's mission of teaching, learning, research and public service.

The University of Texas at Austin Web space, regardless of the domain address, contains official pages in support of the core mission of the university or related administrative business. The Web space also contains pages created by groups or individuals whose expressed views do not necessarily represent the views of the university.

Site content is subject to change without notice. While most sites are publicly accessible, certain services and information offered online may be restricted to specific users or segments of the university population.

The university does not actively monitor or control Web content. However, when the university receives a notification of an alleged violation of law or policy, we investigate and address violations accordingly. Contact abuse@utexas.edu.
