Texas State’s San Marcos Campus is located in a growing
community of 63,000 people in the Austin Metropolitan Area.
Located in the Texas Hill Country, where blackland prairies roll
into beautiful hills, Texas State enjoys a setting that is unique
among Texas universities.

The beauty of the crystal-clear San Marcos River and the
stately cypress and oak trees on the campus add to the charm
of the university’s picturesque setting. Our location on the banks
of the San Marcos River provides recreational activities for
students throughout the year.

The Texas State Round Rock Campus is located north of
Austin in Round Rock. Students there can take upper-level
courses leading to bachelor’s degrees and complete master’s
degree and certificate programs. Our vision for Round Rock is
to continue to offer quality academic programs that meet the
workforce needs of Texas, especially focusing on academic
programs that appeal to working adults, and to serve as a hub
of health professions research and education. Students who
complete their degree requirements at the Round Rock Campus
earn their degrees from Texas State University.
