Longhorn Welcome branding on a burnt orange background

Tradition Starts Here!

Longhorn Welcome is UT’s official welcome for all new and returning Longhorns! As soon as students move to Austin, they can look forward to an exciting series of events hosted across campus. The campus-wide initiative starts with Mooov-In and continues throughout the first week of classes. Longhorn Welcome features larger Signature Events, as well as dozens of campus events hosted by a variety of campus partners allowing all students to attend events that fit their individual interests. 

All events are created to give students the opportunity to meet other Longhorns, discover campus resources, explore the Forty Acres and celebrate UT’s pride and traditions! 

Take a look at our list of Signature Events and get excited for a week’s worth of events! The complete list of events will be posted on the website and Longhorn Welcome app in August.
