School groups, civic groups, and other organized groups may arrange to visit the Coastal
Studies Lab Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 pm.

The CSL offers a variety of tours and marine science-related activities for students and
adults of all ages. The group sponsor should complete and submit the online tour request
form at least two weeks, but preferably four weeks, in advance to request a date and time.
Generally, requests will receive a response within 2 business days. Requests received
during weekends and UTRGV holidays will receive a response once normal business hours
resume. Understand that a request is not a guarantee that the preferred date or time will be
available, so be flexible and include several possible dates that will work for your group.
The CSL accepts purchase order, school check, IDT, personal check, money order, and
cash. We do not accept credit cards at this time. Payment is due on the day of your visit.

Checks should be made payable to The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

Your visit is confirmed when you receive a quote.

Please note this is NOT a confirmation but a request. You will receive an email acknowledgement with additional logistical information, and we will call or email to confirm your tour and review payment.

If you haven't received a response to your request in 24 hours, please call the lab directly!

Tours are offered Monday thru Friday from 9 am to 1 pm

Cash, checks, IDT, and purchase orders accepted. Payment is due of day of visit.
