Burnt Orange Looks Good on Everyone

No matter where you’re from or where you’re going, everyone is welcome at The University of Texas at Austin. When you come to Texas, you’ll get one of the best values in public education in a place committed to innovative learning and research — an environment that encourages creativity, analysis and critical thinking while working to find solutions to real-world problems.

UT offers more than 170 undergraduate fields of study across 13 colleges and schools. The breadth, the diversity and strength of our academic resources is recognized across the globe. We’re the #1 ranked university in Texas in the 2019 Times Higher Ed World Reputation Rankings, and ranked the #15 public college in the nation and the #36 university worldwide by U.S. News & World Report. Over 75% of our undergraduate students conduct research during their four years here, and almost half do it outside the classroom. We have something for everyone –– Big 12 Longhorn sports, a fun campus with plenty to do, and a location right in the heart of the coolest city in Texas (and arguably the world).

After graduation, you’ll still be a Longhorn –– our network of
Texas Exes is almost half a million strong and spread across all 50 states and almost 150 countries. Your Texas connections will continue to open doors long after graduation.

Texas is a feeling, a family, and a first-class education that will help define you for the rest of your life.
