  • The University Library has an excellent atmosphere. It is quiet, serene and a great space for concentrating in your work. I spend hours in the Library, for my research work, and there remains no count of time. It is unbelievable that with quite a large demographic of students accumulating in that space, it is still silent and tranquil.
  • Over the years, the University of Texas at Austin has developed and built the campus into an increasingly beautiful place. There are innumerable study spots and incredible views to be found all over campus. Further, they've been working on street infrastructure to make campus walk-areas safer and more accessible to pedestrians or bikers. Overall, great university.
