The University of Texas at Austin

The University of Texas at Austin’s Houston Admissions Center serves prospective students, families, and high school counselors in Houston, the surrounding suburbs and the Gulf Coast.

What We Offer

The Houston Admissions Center offers the following services:

Should I meet with someone?

Admissions staff are available to answer questions about the application and enrollment process, but meeting with someone from Admissions won't impact your admission decision. Interviews are not part of the university's general admissions process.

Got questions about financial aid? The Houston Admissions Center is home to a dedicated financial-aid counselor, Talrah Pantallion. To meet or speak with Talrah, contact the HAC. 

Information Sessions

Whether you're a high-school student exploring your options or a current college student interested in transferring to UT Austin, we offer information sessions to help you. Space at each session is limited, so advance registration is required.

Are you a Texas Ex living in the Houston area?

We need your help sharing your UT Austin experience with prospective and admitted students from the Houston area. There are many ways to get involved with our recruitment efforts, but the first step is to sign up with Exes for Texas—a program in the Office of Admissions that connects Texas Exes with prospective and admitted students. Once we know how to contact you and learn about the ways you’d like to get involved with our recruitment activities, we’ll be happy to call on you during the year.

Location and Hours

The Houston Admissions Center is located at the corner of Richmond Avenue and Edloe Street, midway between downtown Houston and the Galleria area, with convenient access from the 59/Southwest Freeway.

The center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (with the exception of university holidays).
