Plan your campus visit
The Appelt Aggieland Visitor Center is your hub for visiting Texas A&M University’s beautiful College Station campus. Our Howdy Crew provides on-campus guided tours to individuals and groups, and virtual, on-demand guided tours for individuals. These tours showcase Texas A&M’s unique, world-class resources.
In-Person Campus Tours
Learn about everything Texas A&M has to offer during a tour while visiting campus in person. Our Howdy Crew tour guides will share information about Aggie traditions, academic resources, living and dining options and campus landmarks. Stops on the in-person tour include the Memorial Student Center, Academic Plaza, Aggie Park and the Interdisciplinary Life Sciences Building. We also welcome family members to explore campus and join in on tours.
Register online at least two weeks before your visit. If any accommodations are needed for visitors with disabilities, please let us know at that time. If you need to cancel or modify your visit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also sign up for an admissions information session, residence hall tour, academic college overview or a visit with the Corps of Cadets.
Visit Campus with a Group
Tour groups can explore Texas A&M's academics, student life, history and application process during a 90-minute in-person tour. For group tours, you must have a minimum of 11 people and no more than 66, including chaperones.
In addition to our campus walking tour, groups may select an admissions information presentation or a tour of our residence halls, during available time slots.
Tours begin at the Visitor Center but may be canceled or moved due to inclement weather.
Planning Your Group Tour
Please arrive 15-30 minutes before your tour starts. If you will be late, call us at 979-845-5851 and we’ll do our best to work things out. Scheduled activities may be shortened or canceled for groups arriving more than 15 minutes late.
Students must be organized into groups with one chaperone for every 10 students prior to arrival. Chaperones must stay with the group at all times and are responsible for their group's behavior throughout the tour. If you have scheduled other activities on campus, such as dining or self-guided tours, please provide us with your itinerary. We want to help make sure your day runs smoothly.
Groups interested in eating on campus may contact Texas A&M Dining Services to arrange lunch at one of our on-campus dining facilities.
