Experience the LBJ School

Experience the LBJ School

The LBJ School boasts a dynamic community of students, faculty and staff all working toward the same goal of making an impact on the world. Interested in visiting campus? We'd love to have you. Whether it's attending a class, connecting with admissions staff via an in-person or virtual information session, or attending a workshop or speaker series, we welcome you to experience all the LBJ School has to offer.

Fall 2020 update: Due to COVID-19, the LBJ School Building will remain closed to visitors. We'd love to arrange a virtual meeting with you, either through one of our Information Sessions or via a 1:1 Zoom. Please email us at lbjadmit@austin.utexas.edu to arrange or see the Information Session registration link below.

See what MPAff student Irving Calderon had to say about how Open House answered his questions and convinced him LBJ was the right choice.


Attend an Information Session 

Our Office of Student Affairs and Admissions offers virtual and in-person Information Sessions. This is a great way to meet admissions staff, learn all about the programs we offer and learn how to submit a strong application.
