New Braunfels City University Now Accepting Applications

City University Applications Now Open

Applications are now being accepted for the 2024 class of New Braunfels City University, a free program that gives residents a first-hand look at the inner workings of their city government. 

City University is designed to give participants a greater understanding of essential services, programs, and initiatives provided by the City and offers an opportunity to hear from each department on their goals and primary functions. 

Since its inception in 2011, City University has graduated over 360 participants. Many have gone on to serve on various city boards and commissions, including New Braunfels City Council, the Transportation & Traffic Advisory Board, the Bond Advisory Committee, and the Building Standards Commission.

“City University is a chance for residents to have a hands-on, interactive experience while exploring City facilities and hearing directly from City officials and employees,” said Jenna Vinson, Director of Communications and Community Engagement. “This provides participants with a unique understanding of how their city government works and continues the City’s commitment to transparency.”

The 2024 City University program is an 8-week program with class sessions held weekly, on Thursdays, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm beginning on Thursday, March 21st, followed by a graduation ceremony to be held prior to the New Braunfels City Council meeting on Monday, May 13th from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. Each meeting will give participants an up-close look at how city services are provided, with presentations, demonstrations, and tours, including City administration, Police & Fire, Public Works, Parks, and Library. 

City University applications are now available at and can be submitted online through 5pm on Friday, February 9th, 2024. Space in this program is limited. Applicants must be residents of the City of New Braunfels (or its extraterritorial jurisdiction - ETJ), and be at least 17 years old. For more information or to submit an application, visit
