Visit the Department

General visitor information: The Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences spans two UT Austin buildings, the Jackson Geological Sciences Building (JGB) located west of Waller Creek from San Jacinto Blvd. at E 23rd Street and the  E.P. Schoch Building (EPS) located between JGB and Speedway. Several CapMetro buslines stop along San Jacinto Blvd., and the closest parking garage is the San Jacinto Garage (SJG).

From the East Mall and past the outdoor seating area (The Munib and Angela Masri Family Courtyard), the department’s office (JGB 2.112) is just to your left after entering the building. This will be the second (ground) floor.
