Life on Campus


The University of Texas at Austin is big: we are a campus of 350 acres, 49,000 students (including almost 12,000 graduate students) and more than 2,700 faculty. But our size is also an indication of our diversity - not just in the cultural makeup of the campus - but in the depth and range of our facilities, programs, activities, and resources.

Graduate students find community within their departments and across campus with individuals who share common interests. As part of the campus community, graduate students have access to a wide range of interdisciplinary lectures and high-profile guest speakers who help teach, inspire, and promote dialogue. From student groups to professional development and concert venues to recreation and fitness facilities, you are sure to find something to do and someone to do it with. Check out what is going on around campus.
