Visiting the 40 Acres Group Visits
The University of Texas at Austin welcomes groups of 10 or more visitors to campus for group visit presentations and campus tours.
Group visits are conducted most weekdays, year-'round. To provide visitors with the best service, all group visits must be arranged in advance with the Office of Admissions. We recommend scheduling your visit at least four weeks in advance. Once we receive your scheduling request, our group visit coordinator will contact you.
We are only able to accommodate groups of 80 or fewer students, and we require one chaperone for every 10 students.
Scheduling a Group Visit
Since availability is limited, in order to bring a group to campus you must schedule your visit in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Group visits are not available on , Columbus Day or President’s Day, or during exam weeks, the week of Thanksgiving or Spring Break.
Guidelines and Code of Conduct
All visiting groups must adhere to the Office of Admissions' Group Visit Guidelines and the Code of Conduct for Visiting Groups. Upon scheduling a group visit, chaperones are required to sign and return a copy of the guidelines to the Office of Admissions.
- Late Policy: Chaperones should contact the Visitor Center at 512-471-1000 if they expect their group to arrive late for a visit. Late-arriving groups may not be able to participate in all scheduled activities.
- Cancellation Policy: Because our office happily invests valuable time and resources to provide memorable group-visit experiences, we ask those who need to reschedule or cancel a group visit to contact the Visitor Center as early as possible. If you do not call ahead to cancel a planned visit, we may be unable to schedule your group in the future.
