One day on campus, and you’ll be hooked! Open Houses
The Office of Admissions offers several open houses during the year for prospective students and their families to visit and explore the UT Austin campus. Whether you’re a senior applying to colleges, a junior researching college campuses, or a current college student who’s thinking about transferring to the Forty Acres, we have a program just for you.
Space at each program is limited so online registration is required for all on-campus open houses. If you’re interested in signing up for a traditional campus visit during the week (information session, walking tour and more), visit our Campus Visits page.
