Wildlife on Campus

This time of year bats are commonly seen around the Austin and the UT Campus. Sometimes bats find their way to places where they shouldn’t be, such as inside a building. If you come across a bat in a building, or one outside that needs help, please call Animal Make Safe. Remember, bats are wildlife and should never be touched!

Animal Make Safe: 512-471-2287 during business hours (8am-5pm) or 512-471-2671 after hours.
