The cost per night is $66 without a meal plan and $83 with a meal plan (payable upon online registration). The meal plan includes 3 meals a day. (More information on dining options here.)

Check-in will be in Carter Hall, which is adjacent to Samuelson Hall. We will post more details on check-in and check-out procedures soon.

A list of nearby hotels may be found here. Please note that the collection of hotels at less than a 30-minute walk to campus is empty.


The most convenient large airport is DFW International Airport, though it is also not unreasonable to fly into Dallas Love Field. There are several options to get to campus from the airport, including shuttle services such as Super Shuttle.
