About the RGV

With campuses in Brownsville, Edinburg and Harlingen, UTRGV serves the Rio Grande Valley and beyond. With a population of more than 1 million people, the Valley is one of the fastest growing regions in Texas. The Valley’s geographical location places it in a region where its roots extend into both Mexico and the United States. Every year the Valley grows and with it comes economic opportunities for graduates.

Home to natural habitats like the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge and South Texas Botanical Gardens, the Valley is a wonderful place to just kick back and relax. South Padre Island, the largest barrier island in the world, serves as the hot spot for Valley locals and tourists. Whether it is the beautiful beach or the opportunity for personal and professional growth, the Valley is a perfect place to call home.
