Plan Your Visit

The beauty of our campus is only the beginning. Before you make the trip, schedule an appointment with an Admissions Counselor to make sure you get answers for all your questions about academics, costs, campus life, student resources and more.

We anticipate resuming on-campus events in July, with registration opening in June

Although some shelter-in-place orders are expiring or being amended at the state, county and local levels, all safety measures Texas State University implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will remain in place through July 2. In the meantime, we are offering online visit and event opportunities. Additional information and updates related to COVID-19 may be found on our FAQ page.

Make the Most of Your Visit

In addition to taking a guided tour of campus, you should also plan time to stroll through downtown San Marcos, and enjoy the river and the beauty of the Texas Hill Country.

Austin and San Antonio are the nearest major airports to our campus. You can find more tips for visiting campus and Central Texas, including driving directions and help finding accommodations in San Marcos, on our Visitor Resources page. You’ll also find great local restaurants, authentically Texas entertainment ideas and overnight accommodation options.
