The neighborhood of University of Texas at Austin is located near the city's center just off Interstate 35. It is bordered by Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Guadalupe Street, East Dean Keaton Street and Manor Street. Public transpiration systems carry residents in and out of the neighborhood such as Capital Metro and university shuttles. Walking is the main mode of transportation in the University of Texas at Austin neighborhood, as there isn't much room for parking a car.

Clark Field, a recreation center, sits within the neighborhood on the University of Texas at Austin's campus. Here residents can go for a run or walk, play soccer, ultimate disc, lacrosse and basketball, or do physical training. Features of the Caven Lacrosse and Sports Center at Clark Field include 2.3 acres of synthetic turf, a 444-yard recreational jogging track, 10 exercise stations, a pedestrian bridge that crosses Waller Creek and security lighting that remains lit from dusk to dawn.

You can learn more about natural science by visiting the Texas Memorial Museum. The museum is located on campus and features exhibits based on 5.7 million collected organic specimens detailing prehistoric life, evolution, Texas wildlife and rocks and minerals.

The neighborhood is home to the University of Texas at Austin, and a desirable destination for not only the college's students but also tourists, singles and the city's trendier population.
