Plan Your Visit
Howdy, 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.
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.
Ok, now its time to find out more about where Aggies live. Get to know more about the on campus Aggie experience by checking out our tour options and schedule below.
Our students provide walking tours of our residence hall and apartment communities to potential Aggies, their families, and visitors.
Each tour will allow you to view individual rooms and community amenities.
Tours are accessible to wheel chair users.
Learn about living at the heart of the Aggie experience on this virtual tour of residences, amenities, dining options, and life on campus. If you are unable to come to campus for a tour of campus, we can bring the residence halls and apartments to you through our Virtual Tours.
If you are planning to bring a large group (20 students or more) to campus, you can schedule a private tour. We ask that you schedule private tours at least two weeks in advance.
Small groups or individuals are asked to attend one of our regularly scheduled tours before scheduling a private tour. Private tours are not available on Sundays, during finals, or when the University is closed between semesters or holidays. Please consult the Academic Calendar for details.
