Plan Your Visit

We can't wait to show you the beauty of our campuses. Before you make the trip, however, we ask that you review the information below and contact us with any questions. After your visit, we encourage you to contact an Admissions Counselor with any questions you may still have.

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.

You can find helpful information below for visiting campus and Central Texas, driving directions, airport information, and overnight accommodations in San Marcos. The San Marcos Convention and Visitor's Bureau is also a great resource for more information about things to do in and around the area, including great local restaurants, authentically Texas entertainment ideas, and more.

When visiting our Round Rock Campus, take time to visit downtown Round Rock, too!
