Main Building


The Plant Resources Center is located in the Main Building building on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. Our main entrance is Room 127 located on the east hallway on the first floor (one up from ground). The collections are housed on six floors within the Main building and tower and are arranged in a modified Engler and Prantl system.

The Plant Resources Center is open for general use 8:00-11:30 A.M. and 12:30-5:00 P.M., Monday through Friday. Visitors wishing to use the collection for research or identification are welcome, but should first contact the curator for an appointment (see visitor policy).
