The Bush School of Government and Public Service is part of the Bush Presidential Library Complex located on the West Campus of Texas A&M University. Housed in the Robert H. and Judy Ley Allen Building with the University's Departments of Economics and Political Science, the Bush School shares a striking 90-acre site with the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum and the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center. Among the amenities inside and around the School are the 41st Club for casual dining; a shaded patio outside the Allen Building; a large, restful pond (stocked for fishing); and walking and bike trails in the adjacent and beautifully landscaped Research Park. The School also boasts the only horseshoe pit at any school of public affairs-specially installed at the request of Former President Bush for all students.


Students at the Bush School have the very latest technologies. Wireless access is available throughout the building; video conferencing is available in several meeting rooms, and students have access to resources including a language lab, computer lab, and the University's online library resources.

Language Lab

The Bush School offers unlimited access to all its students to Rosetta Stone language programs – all languages, all levels. Students can access the language programs from wherever they have internet access. There is no cost to the students.

Student Workroom

A student workroom with wireless access is located on the first floor of the Allen Building. Here students can use a copy machine or printer, grab a quick bite to eat in the kitchen area, or just visit with colleagues. Student mailboxes are located here as well. Also located throughout the building are several sitting areas in which students can gather and relax.
