Housing & Travel


Discounted accommodations are available at The Tradition, a commercial dormitory. Private suites generally cost around $37 per night (subject to change) and include daily breakfast. The Tradition is located in the Northgate area adjacent to campus; there are multiple restaurants within a couple of blocks. Cushing is about a 12-15 minute walk. All arrangements for accommodations in this dormitory will be made through Cushing Library. You can learn more about The Tradition by visiting their website.

Workshop participants may also stay in one of the many local hotels. Rates vary. If you choose to stay off campus, you will need a car, as there is no off-campus hotel within easy walking distance of the Cushing Library. You will also still need a parking pass. If you choose to stay off campus, please let us know when you register for the workshop. You are responsible for your own reservations if you stay off campus.


Directions to the campus and Cushing Library are available online.

Located in what National Public Radio has described as the "lush central Texas countryside," Texas A&M University is within easy access of most of the major metropolitan areas in Texas: Austin is about 2 hours, Houston 1 ½ hours, Dallas 2 ½ - 3 hours, San Antonio 2 ½ - 3 hours. Commuter flights to Easterwood Airport in College Station, minutes from the A&M campus, are available on United from Houston Intercontinental airport and on American from Dallas/Fort Worth. If you fly into Easterwood Airport, cab fare from the airport to the campus or nearby is about $12.00.
