Bobcat Day Directions & Tips

Driving Directions:  Download Driving Directions (PDF)

Construction Alert! Improvements around San Marcos and on campus mean there may be construction on routes into campus. Even if you have visited campus before, your route on Saturday may be different because of construction. Please heed these tailor-made driving directions to minimize delays.

Parking Tips:  Pay attention to where you park — are you in a parking garage, what are landmarks near where you parked, etc. Look at sandwich board signs as you walk to the LBJ Student Center.

General Tips:

  • Be on time — to get the most out of Bobcat Day, arrive before check-in begins at 8:00 a.m.
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes — our beautiful campus is very hilly.
  • Plan to be flexible — sessions often fill up quickly, so have a backup plan.

Not able to attend? Please cancel or reschedule your visit.
