Texas State’s San Marcos campus is located in a growing community of more than 60,000 people in the Austin Metropolitan Area. Nestled in the Texas Hill Country, where blackland prairies roll into beautiful hills, Texas State enjoys a setting that is unique among Texas universities. The location on the banks of the San Marcos River provides recreational activities for students throughout the year.

As the university’s student population has grown — from 303 in 1903 to 38,231 in 2019 — the San Marcos campus also has expanded. Today, the campus has grown to 500 acres. Texas State has an additional 4,500 acres of academic, agricultural, research and recreational areas.

The Texas State Round Rock Campus covers 101 acres north of Austin. The campus is a hub for health professions programs, and students can take upper-level courses leading to bachelor’s degrees and complete master’s degree and certificate programs. Students who complete their degree requirements at the Round Rock Campus earn their degrees from Texas State University.
