Living the Longhorn Life Events

Living the Longhorn Life events offer inclusive, free and fun opportunities to get involved on campus. Events focus on mental and physical wellness, sustainability, making connections and building community. Find upcoming events on our HornsLink page.

We offer two main types of events:

  • Grab and Go: These events provide a quick connection for students, usually offering free food, UT Austin giveaways and more.
  • Activity: These events include our different event series, as well as one-time activities.
