University of Texas System
The University of Texas System (UT System) is a government entity of the state of Texas that oversees 14 educational institutions throughout the state including eight universities and six health institutions. The UT System is headquartered in Downtown Austin, and has a total enrollment of over 216,000 students (largest university system in Texas) and employs more than 87,000 faculty and staff. The UT System's $27 billion endowment (as of the 2017 fiscal year) is the largest of any public university system in the United States. As of 2018, Reuters ranks the UT System among the top 10 most innovative academic institutions in the world.

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 resulted in a single institution, including a medical school, spanning 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. The new university began full operation in the 2015–16 school year.
The University of Texas System also has six standalone medical schools. None are officially affiliated with any of the regular academic UT colleges (see above), though they may have close relationships or special joint programs with some based on history or close geographic location.
Only two UT System universities (UT Austin and UT Rio Grande Valley) house their own medical schools.

The administrative offices are in Downtown Austin. The UT system approved moving the system headquarters in November 2012. Bonds from the UT System's endowment funded the construction of the new 19-story, 330,000-square-foot (31,000 m2) headquarters, which had a price tag of $102 million. The UT system planned to lease a portion of the facility for shops and other offices, with the approximately 200,000-square-foot (19,000 m2) remaining portion used for its own employees. The system headquarters, named Replacement Office Building (ROB), were scheduled to open on August 1, 2017.
The University of Texas System was previously headquartered in O. Henry Hall in Downtown Austin. The system headquarters complex previously included multiple buildings, which had 550 employees in 2014. These faciliies included O. Henry Hall, Claudia Taylor Johnson Hall (named after Lady Bird Johnson), 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.
In 2013 the UT system approved the demolitions of the Colorado Building and the Lavaca Building, and the new UT headquarters was built where these buildings previously stood. The Texas State University System purchased O. Henry Hall in 2015 for $8.2 million; the UT System leased it and continued using it as its administrative headquarters prior to the 2017 completion of the UT System's current headquarters. The UT system replaced Claudia Taylor Johnson Hall and Ashbel Smith Hall with a commercial property that used the façade of Johnson Hall and is leased by Trammell Crow. The Ashbel Smith name is no longer used due to his involvement in the Confederate States of America. Ashbel Smith Hall was promptly imploded on March 25, 2018.
Coordinated Admissions ProgramEdit
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.
