The Comal building was known as the Education Building for much of its history. It housed the campus school from it's opening in 1918 until the campus elementary (Evans) was constructed in the 1930s, then it became the campus high school. The agreement between the city of San Marcos and the college is an interesting story.

Alkek Library, Room 580
Research by appointment
The University Archives is physically located on the 5th floor of the Alkek Library. In-person and virtual research assistance is generally available Monday through Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm (excluding holidays and energy conservation days).
Research appointments are required for in-person research to allow time for retrieval of offsite materials, to reserve research space, and to allow staff to sanitize the space between researchers. Walk-in assistance is dependent on staff and space availability, as researchers with appointments are given priority. Masks are encouraged.
To request virtual or in-person assistance, please Ask an Archivist.
