Tours are outdoors and last about an hour and 30 minutes, so wear your walking shoes and dress for the Texas weather! After the tour, you will have an information session to provide students with an overview of the admission process.

Large Group Tours
The Texas State Welcome Center welcomes many groups to campus every year. We provide information and campus tours to various large or sponsored groups interested in visiting campus.
Group visits are held most weekdays, year-round. To provide you with the best possible service, we ask that you register your group at least three weeks in advance. One of our Welcome Center specialists will contact you.
We are only able to accommodate up to 80 students, and we require one chaperone per every 10 students attending.
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Welcome Center will provide verification forms or sign school notes only for those students who take an official campus tour or who meet with an admissions counselor. If you forgot to get a school note when you visited, request one below.
If you require accommodations due to an injury or disability in order to participate in your scheduled campus tour, no problem! We've got you covered — please contact the Welcome Center by calling 512.245.8871 or emailing the Welcome Center at least 72 hours prior to your tour.
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. Unfortunately, there is no place on our campus to rent or secure a wheelchair or scooter.
If someone in your party is in need of an interpreter, please contact Interpreter Services at 512.245.8374.
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. Use our interactive map to see what areas of campus are under construction.
