The Texas Union

Building Hours

The Texas Union was built in 1933 to serve as a college independent community center or "living room" on campus.

It is one of the buildings designed by Paul Cret who also designed the Tower and Main Building, Goldsmith Hall and Texas Memorial Museum on campus.

Money to build the Union was raised by the Texas Exes in a campaign led by Thomas Watt Gregory.

Hungry?!

Tower Tours

This is a non-historical tour. Information about the Tower's architecture is provided, and it is a wonderful opportunity for photos and a full 360 degree view of Austin and the UT campus.
