Plan Your Visit

Picture of Academic BuildingHowdy, and welcome to the on campus Aggie experience at one of the top research universities in the nation! Come experience the rich traditions and culture, explore campus landmarks and engage with the friendly people who call Aggieland home.

We have links and resources listed below to help you prepare for your visit. We suggest you get started by registering your visit and reserving a campus tour with the Appelt Aggieland Visitor’s Center. After you register, consider the best place to park near all the action by visiting our friends at Transportation Services.

Maybe you have finances on your mind or admissions questions. We got you covered there too.

All this planning, walking, and exploring got you hungry? Visit University Dining to learn about your options while on campus or the freshman required meal plan.
