A staple since 1883, The University of Texas campus is located just north of the heart of the city and is home to a diverse and fluid population of more than 50,000 students.
University of Texas Longhorn fans take football seriously. Nationally known for their high energy and team spirit, fans live for home games and tailgating. Join in the excitement and bleed burnt orange with the best of ‘em.
Tailgating Done Right
Don your fresh UT colors and hit the hardcore Scholz Garten tailgate scene. Visit the Beir Garten for a pre-game pint, weinerscnitzel, bratwurst and old-fashioned Texas BBQ.
Walk the University of Texas parking lots for a street-party-style tailgate scene. You'll find fans of all generations tossing the pigskin, slinging back Shiners and tending to smoking grills starting at 7 a.m. on game days.
Pop into the University of Texas Alumni Center for a taste of UT legacy during halftime (or find a member to take you before the game. The center is open to all after halftime).
Get your picture taken with Bevo - UT's massive longhorn mascot - at the Moncrief-Neuhaus Athletics Center tailgate before the game. Take advantage of photo opportunities with Texas Cheer and Hook ‘em (cartoon version of Bevo) at the LBJ Tailgate. (Note: Tickets cannot be purchased to the Moncrief- Neuhaus tailgate, but they can be purchased to the LBJ Tailgate.)
