There’s no better way to find out what campus is really like than to explore it with a current Texas State student. During your tour, our student tour guides will show you the heart of campus, share their experiences as Bobcats and provide general information about the university they call home. Tours are outdoors and last about an hour and 30 minutes, so wear your walking shoes and dress for the weather! After the tour, you will have an information session which will provide students with an overview of the admission process.

The Texas State campus is wheelchair and scooter accessible, and we will be glad to provide assistance to anyone who needs help finding their way around campus via accessible routes. Regrettably, there is no place on our campus to rent or secure a wheelchair or scooter.

Texas State and the surrounding community are constantly growing and improving. This often means that there will be construction on and around the campus. We ask you to be patient and allow yourself extra time to arrive.
