The University of Texas has great facilities that should definitely be utilized while you are here. We have great equipment in our gym and Rec Center: machines, weights, a pool, volleyball courts, racquetball courts, an indoor track, and a climbing wall. A few blocks away from the University proper are the intramural fields, located at Guadalupe and 51st Streets, where students can play various sports (soccer, football, Frisbee). The Texas Union is a great place to study, relax, grab a bite to eat, watch TV, or make copies. The second floor chairs are a comfortable place to either hang out or take a quick nap.
The University of Texas has more than a dozen libraries, and permanent exhibits include the Gutenberg Bible and the world's first photograph. The Benson is the largest collection of Latin American books in North America and they can be accessed by any UT student. There is an Undergraduate Writing Center located on campus in the UGL where you can get help editing your papers and work on your writing skills free of charge. There are also career centers within every college, as well as the large career center in Jester. Also in Jester is the Jester Learning Center where you can receive walk-in tutoring in many subjects.
