University of Texas Rio Grande Valley
On June 14, 2013, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed SB 24 into law, officially approving the creation of a new university in South Texas within the UT System, officially replacing UT-Brownsville and UT-Pan American. The initiative will result in a single institution, which will include a medical school, that spans the entire Rio Grande Valley, with a presence in each of the major metropolitan areas of Brownsville, Edinburg, Harlingen, and McAllen. On December 12, 2013, the UT Board of Regents voted to name the new university The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.
In addition to nine academic institutions, the University of Texas System also has six health institutions.
- The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston
- The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
- The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
- The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler
- The University of Texas Medical Branch
- The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center
In addition to these health institutions, the Board of Regents has approved plans to open the Dell Medical School at the Austin campus.

The University of Texas System is headquartered in Downtown Austin. The system headquarters complex includes O. Henry Hall, Claudia Taylor Johnson Hall, Ashbel Smith Hall, the Colorado Building, the Lavaca Building, and the Norwood Tower. Parking garages serving the complex include Parking Garage I, Parking Garage II, Parking Garage III, 300 West 6th Street Parking Garage, and the garage between the Colorado and Lavaca buildings.
Coordinated Admissions Program
The Coordinated Admissions Program (more colloquially known as "CAP") offers some UT Austin applicants the chance to attend the university if they complete their freshman year at another system school and meet specified requirements. Each institution in the University of Texas System sets its own admissions standards, and not all schools may accept a particular CAP student. UT Dallas does not participate in the CAP program, and UTSA, the largest recipient of CAP students, has stated it will be phasing out the program within the next ten years.
