Through a succession of large grants from the National Science Foundation, UT has built a series of the fastest supercomputers for open research in the world. 

In addition to its 431-acre main campus near downtown Austin, UT extends to the J.J. Pickle Research Campus in north Austin, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in south Austin, the McDonald Observatory in West Texas, the Marine Science Institute in Port Aransas, and several cultural and historic sites across the state.

The university’s holdings comprise more than 170 million objects including a Gutenberg Bible and other rare books, manuscripts, photographs, artworks, and artifacts from natural history to pop culture that reside in four museums and seventeen libraries. The Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library was the first presidential library to be located on a college campus. 

UT student-athletes, now competing in the Big XII Conference, have won more than fifty national championships and 130 Olympic medals, and the Texas Longhorn football team plays in the eighth-largest stadium in America, the 100,000-seat Darrell K. Royal–Texas Memorial Stadium.
