So Many Ways to Get Involved

There’s no limit to the ways you can find new experiences, meet new people, and get engaged with campus life. Get wild on an excursion with Outdoor Recreation or join friends to hear up-and-coming bands down on Cheatham Street.

Living the Bobcat Life

Nearly 7,000 Bobcats get to live on our San Marcos Campus each year, including almost every first-year student. You’ll be close to class, great places to eat, and all the activity on the Quad. There’s a year-round slate of events, performances, guest speakers, and, of course, Bobcat athletics.

Finding Your Places

At 500 acres, our San Marcos Campus is big, but it’s filled with smaller places for you to discover, learn, create, and enjoy, including art galleries, maker spaces, sport fields, and a creative studio. Climb the rock wall, delve into Texas music history, or get to know downtown San Marcos.

Helping You Succeed

Graduation should be only one chapter of your success story. We have resources to help you meet whatever challenges you face, from staying on track academically to dealing with unexpected life events. From orientation to graduation to starting a career, we’re here to get you there.

We're the most beautiful university in Texas and the most welcoming community, too. See why more than 38,000 students like you are proud to call this place home.
