Our Tower The Next 100 Years

We are embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime venture to restore, revitalize and reimagine the Tower for Longhorns today and for generations to come.

The UT Tower is one of the most iconic, beloved and enduring symbols of The University of Texas at Austin — the heart of the Forty Acres.

Our Tower: The Next 100 Years is the first major investment in the Tower since its inception in 1937. We invite every Longhorn to be part of the effort.
