Group Guidelines

We strive to provide a safe, fun and informative visit. All visiting groups are asked to read these guidelines and abide by them while on campus:

Supervision – Per university risk management guidelines, groups must have at least one adult chaperone for every ten students visiting Texas A&M University to ensure safety and to maintain order. These chaperones must remain with the group at all times.

Timeliness – Part of what makes a campus visit experience unique is that many of the activities associated with a visit to Texas A&M University are conducted by current students. Group leaders are asked to make every effort to be on time for all scheduled tours/presentations. If the group foresees being late, we ask that the group leader contact the Visitor Center at the number provided on the group’s itinerary. We also ask that the group leader provide a cell phone contact number to the Visitor Center as a means for the university to contact the group if needed. Please note that scheduled activities may need to be shortened or cancelled for groups arriving more than ten minutes late.

Advance Planning - Students should be organized into groups with their assigned chaperones prior to arriving on campus. We ask that group members refrain from using electronic devices such as cells phones while participating in tours or presentations. If any members of the group have special needs, please notify us in advance, so that we may accommodate your request or connect you with the appropriate services.

Discipline and Control – The group leader and chaperones are responsible for disciplining and controlling students while on the Texas A&M University campus. The group should respect the facilities they use (i.e. pick up any food or paper supplies used by the group). The visiting organization will be held responsible for any damages that may occur to the scheduled facilities during their visit.

School Bus Parking – With advance notice, the Visitor Center or Office of Admissions staff are able to coordinate school bus parking with Texas A&M University Transportation Services. Directions on where to park will be on your visit itinerary.
