For UT Students

Texas Performing Arts is much more than a showplace for fine arts students and visiting performers. It is also a vital hub where students, faculty, and the Central Texas community connect and share ideas. 

Hook 'Em Arts Lounge

Before and after select Texas Performing Arts events, we host student events in The Hook 'Em Arts Lounge on Level 4 of Bass Concert Hall. These events generally consist of activities related to the show, contests, and food. Our events are completely free and they are a great way to meet other students interested in the performing arts or just relax before the show. 

Join Our Student Organization Hook 'em Arts

Open to all UT students who have an interest in the performing arts, Hook ‘em Arts meets every Monday, at 5 pm in The Hook 'Em Arts Lounge.
