Plan Your Visit

Weather and Attire

While you’re visiting the University of Texas at Austin, we want you to be as comfortable as possible. We advise that you check for weather conditions prior to your arrival.

Family Orientation is casual so please dress comfortably. We recommend bringing a light sweater, as it can be cold inside. There will be some walking throughout the day so comfortable shoes are encouraged.

We also recommend bringing a refillable water bottle. Several campus buildings, including Gregory Gym (GRE) and the Student Activity Center (SAC), have filtered water bottle refilling stations. If you are a notetaker, you may want to bring additional paper to write on.

Lost and Found

Any lost or found items in Gregory Gym or the SAC will be held at the respective building’s information desks. At the end of the day, any unclaimed items will be taken to the University of Texas Police Department.

ATM Locations

ATM machines are available at Gregory Gym and the Student Activity Center.


Due to UT Austin’s Internet security policies, Wi-Fi access is unavailable to Family Orientation guests while on campus.
