Welcome to the most beautiful campus in Texas.

Located in San Marcos at the foot of the Texas Hill Country, Texas State University enjoys a setting that is unique among Texas universities. The beauty of the crystal clear San Marcos River  and many champion cypress and pecan trees  add to the charm of our environment. Although major metropolitan centers are nearby, San Marcos has managed to retain the charm of a smaller community, and Texas State still has a real university atmosphere – a place where faculty and students take the processes of teaching and learning seriously.
