The University of Texas at Austin is a public research university located in Austin, Texas serving 40,500 undergraduates and 11,000 postgraduates.  One fun fact is the South by Southwest conference and festival was co-founded by several UT Austin alumni.

“Austin is known for their late night live music, so head over to Stubb’s, Emo’s East, and The Parish during your stay.”
