The spring 2014 UT Austin Landscape Master Plan focuses primarily on the quality and function of the physical campus environment. Landscape encompasses the aesthetic and practical makeup of campus trees, vegetation, the shape of the land, a diversity of fauna and unique features such as Waller Creek. The continued health and ecological function of our landscape reflects our commitment to operational excellence.

UT Austin recently recently was awarded a SITES v2 Gold certification for the 16.2 acres of the Dell Medical School Landscape in 2017. This was the first SITES Gold certificate in Texas.
