The Campus Real Estate Office (CREO) is responsible for real estate transactions involving The University of Texas at Austin’s property holdings. CREO reports to and works closely with the Office of the Vice President and Chief Financial Officer and the Office of the Vice President for University Operations.
CREO also works closely with The University of Texas System Real Estate Office (REO) to process and administer gifts and bequests. Properties given to the university by will or gift, such as the Brackenridge Tract, are managed by REO.
Our campus real estate portfolio includes the following three types of properties:
- University leased property—property that the university leases (both as a landlord and a tenant)
- University owned property—property that the university owns and occupies
- University ground leased property—property the university owns and leases to long-term tenants (the Brackenridge Tract and Arbor Walk)
