Welcome to The University of Texas at Austin. Founded in 1883, UT is one of the largest and most respected universities in the nation. The Times Higher Education magazine ranked UT fifth among U.S. public universities in its ranking of the world's top 400 universities.

Ours is a diverse learning community, with students from more than 100 countries and a student body that reflects the face of our society. African American, Hispanic, and Asian American students make up more than 35 percent of the enrollment, and 9 percent are international students.

In addition, the campus is home to many cultural treasures. The Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center is one of the world's finest cultural archives. The Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art houses one of the nation's preeminent university art collections. The Dolph Briscoe Center for American History is a research facility with rich collections in Texas and Southwest history, among other specialties. The Texas Memorial Museum is a premier natural science center. The LBJ Library and Museum contains papers and artifacts from the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson.

I hope you will have an opportunity to visit our beautiful campus in person to discover what makes UT special and why Austin is consistently ranked among the most livable cities in America.
