Download the Texas A&M app for mobile access to your schedule, bus routes, maps, eCampus, and security information.


New Student Events

We are excited to welcome our new students to the School. You are required to attend mandatory events before starting classes. See the links for details about incoming student events. 


Student Accounts

Students are assigned a unique identification number (UIN) and alias (NetID) to access the Howdy portal, where you register for classes, pay tuition statements and access university resources. All students must obtain an Aggie ID card. This gives you access to the libraries, Rec Center, sporting events, health center, etc. Graduate students are provided a SPH building access card at the start of the semester.



SPH students maintain two (2) email accounts, one for Texas A&M University and the other for the Health Science Center. Students must check these emails on a daily basis to receive official communications from the University and SPH.


Living BCS 

Use these resources to navigate campus, purchase parking permits, and identify bus routes, visitor parking and housing. If you prefer to live in an apartment, the University provides the Gardens and White Creek apartments. In addition, you can use the Aggie Search feature on the Off Campus Housing Office website to identify apartments in the Bryan-College Station (BCS) area. TIP: If you do not have a vehicle, use the advanced search to locate an apartment on the bus route.

For parking permits, the Student Selectable Parking Map will show you the closest options (lots 114, 122, 98, 18 and 73). Lot 100 is typically always available, the consider creating a waitlist with your preferred lots. 

Academic Support
