The University of Texas at Austin is a vast place, with more than 40 acres of campus containing untold collections, artifacts and treasures. From secret nooks (the lovely Goldsmith Hall courtyard) to unexpected resources (did you know RLM has a telescope on the roof?), surprises can be found all over campus.

The University of Texas at Austin is — and always has been — a university for the people of Texas. Whether we are teaming up with community organizations to tackle health care issues, bring the arts to underserved areas or solve environmental problems, we take seriously our mission of service.

The university has a rich tradition of working with communities across the state through collaborative activities and programs that involve our faculty, staff and students. Such partnerships are mutually beneficial to the university and the community. Not only are university resources shared with communities, but community knowledge and experiences are shared with the university, helping improve learning and scholarship.
