artist's concept: black hole You may be interested to visit our Student Observatory on the roof of Painter Hall. This houses a 9 inch refracting telescope. The general student night is Fridays at 7:00 - 8:00 PM, clear nights only. This is a simple telescope to use and students (you!) can be checked out to observe with it. Please see me for further information. You may also look at the Painter Hall Telescope Handbook, which explains the check-out procedure and the use of the telescope. You can also consult the Educational Services Office, RLM 13.122, 471-1307. There are also Star Parties every Wednesday evening on the roof of RLM using the 16-inch telescope.

The University of Texas at Austin provides upon request appropriate academic accommodations for qualified students with disabilities. For more information, contact the Office of the Dean of Students at 471-6259, 471-4641 TTY.

Specialized services are available on campus through Services for Students with Disabilities.
