Be Prepared for Colder Temperatures

The safety of students and employees is our top priority at UT Austin. We work closely with other government agencies to monitor forecasts and weather conditions, to make decisions about potential delays and closures, and to communicate that information quickly and effectively to the campus community.

UT Night Rides

Rides from main campus to your home

If you are on campus late night and need a ride, catch one from Lyft -- the exclusive provider for UT Austin’s Night Rides program! 7 days a week from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m.


Use your creativity to help share the Be Safe message!

UT Austin students, faculty members and staff members are invited to help shape the Be Safe campaign. We want you to create posters, social media, paintings, sculptures, poetry – you can use absolutely any creative venue to help share the Be Safe message. Your creativity could be showcased in a number of ways – including being shown on the jumbotron at a UT game to 100,000 fans!
