Community Residents


In accordance with Texas State University's recent announcement regarding COVID-19, Texas State is taking precautionary measures to help protect our university community from the spread of COVID-19.

With this announcement, the 18th Annual Bobcat Build scheduled for April 4, 2020 has now been cancelled and due to the complexities of the event we are not able to reschedule the event this year.

We look forward to your participation in Bobcat Build 2021.

If you have any questions please feel free to email us at bobcatbuild@txstate.edu. Due to the influx of emails, we will try to respond to your email as soon as possible.

Thank you and have a safe Spring Break!
