University of Texas
Austin, TX 78712 (512) 471-3434
The UT tower has served as the university’s most recognizable landmark and symbol since it was completed in 1937. At 301 feet high, the 27-floor Tower measures six feet taller than the Texas Capitol and can be seen from almost any location in Austin.
The Tower is most visible on nights when it’s bathed in orange light following athletic victories or to recognize faculty, staff, and student achievements. But the Tower is also beautifully lit in various configurations for other reasons, too.
