Visit Our Campus
Our campus is like a small city with its own attractions, including libraries, museums, and public art displays, located near the heart of downtown Austin. The College of Education is located in the George I. Sánchez Building near the corner of Martin Luther King Blvd. and Congress Ave, just blocks north of the Texas Capitol and next door to the Blanton Museum. Our Department of Kinesiology and Health Education is located in L. Theo Bellmont Hall, attached to DKR Texas Memorial Stadium. Plan a visit, take a virtual tour, and learn more about the 40 acres!
Austin has something for everyone: great food (especially breakfast tacos); a vibrant music, film, and art scene; strong technology, engineering, and healthcare industries; and many of the parks and trails along Austin’s Greenbelt and Lady Bird Lake are ready to be explored. We think you’ll enjoy checking out everything Austin has to offer.
