Touring the gorgeous campus of the fifth-largest university in the nation by foot is one of many exciting free things to do in Austin. The 400-plus-acre plot of land is blessed with a nice mix of classic and modern architecture among its 150 buildings. The buildings are all linked by an extensive system of underground tunnels that measure approximately six miles in length combined, but you’ll have to stay above ground when navigating UT’s grounds, as the tunnels are closed to the public.
The University of Texas is known as one of the top sports schools in the nation, fielding consistently competitive football, volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball teams, to name a few. Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium is a must-visit attraction for any fan of college football, as the 100,119-seat stadium is usually filled to the brim and unbelievably loud on every Longhorn game day.
