Undergraduate Admissions Updates

Prospective Student Virtual Information Sessions

To see upcoming dates and register for an on-campus walking tour, please click here

As we adapt to this evolving situation, please consider joining us for a College of Fine Arts Virtual Information Session. Please register online to attend a session. If you are interested in attending a Virtual University of Texas at Austin Information Session, you can register online.

If you are unable to attend one of these Virtual Information Sessions, please consider emailing our Admissions Coordinator with any inquiries at tadadmissions@utexas.edu, or request a virtual appointment (to be held over the phone or video chat).

Tip: Conversations with fine arts admissions staff are not interviews and do not impact admissions decisions.

Be a Longhorn: Texas Admissions is another great way to see some of the University campus! The short video series, Lights, Camera, Longhorns, follows UT students through various parts of campus and experiences in Austin. Check it out!

Access and Use of Theatre and Dance Facilities

Building operations for the Department of Theatre and Dance continue to be impacted by the pandemic. The following is the current, yet temporary, guidelines for accessing the department's facilities. For questions, please contact the department at theatreanddance@utexas.edu.

Email remains the primary form of communicating updates and information related to access to Department of Theatre and Dance facilities as well as updates from the university regarding the response to the pandemic. Please continue to check your email frequently for updates.

Building Access Control Systems (BACS)

All students, faculty and staff are encouraged to carry their UT ID card at all times. The F. Loren Winship Drama Building and Laboratory Theatre Building are supported by building access control systems (BACS). After regular operating hours, the Winship Building and Lab Theatre may be locked down and/or allow entry with a UT ID that has an embedded proximity access chip (applies to most UT IDs issued to students, faculty and staff). If you need to access a classroom or lab after hours, your UT ID is your key for entry.

Please read the Building Access and Hours information below carefully for details

Celebrated/Main Entrance

The university define celebrated entrances as one or more obvious, inviting, entrances to buildings, one of which must be ADA compliant. The Winship Drama Building's celebrated entrance is the south entryway, located on East 23rd Street. For the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters, all students, faculty, staff, guests, and vendors, will enter and exit the Winship Building through this entrance.

For those seeking access via BACS, the door reader is adjacent to the ADA door on the celebrated entrance.

The Winship Building's remaining entrances will be secured and prohibit entrance. These doors may continue to be used for emergency exits. The loading dock door will be accessible via BACS to select staff and faculty. For use of the dock and door, please email Nathan Harper, Assistant Operations Manager, at Nathan.Harper@austin.utexas.edu at least two business days in advance.
