The University of Texas at Brownsville (abbreviated as UTB and formerly known as the University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College [UTB/TSC]) is an educational institution located in Brownsville, Texas. The university is on the land once occupied by Fort Brown. It is a member of the University of Texas System. The institution was formed from a partnership between Texas Southmost College and the University of Texas-Pan American at Brownsville. From 1991 to 2011, the University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College became a substantial presence in South Texas education, providing unique opportunities for more than 17,000 students from Texas, as well as from Mexico and elsewhere. The partnership has ended. UTB is becoming a standalone University of Texas institution, and Texas Southmost College is becoming once again an independent community college. UTB itself offers baccalaureate and an increasing number of graduate degrees in liberal arts, sciences, education, business, and professional programs designed to meet regional, national, and international needs.

UTB and TSC have overlapping facilities on the same campus. UTB continues rapid physical growth with additions such as the International Technology, Education and Commerce Center (formerly Amigoland Mall), the Education and Business Complex (Fall 2006), the Recreation, Education and Kinesiology Center (Spring 2009), and Casa Bella (Fall 2011).
