New Braunfels City University is a series of informational sessions held annually that highlight each City department and the services they provide to the community. About 30 community members are selected to participate each year and, since its inception in 2011, the program has had nearly 300 graduates.

City University is a free program open to City of New Braunfels residents (or residents who live in the city's extraterritorial jurisdiction [ETJ]). Participants must submit an application and be at least 17 years old.  

The 2023 City University program is an 8-week class with sessions held weekly, on Thursdays, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm beginning March 23, plus a graduation ceremony to be held prior to the New Braunfels City Council meeting on Monday, May 8 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm.
