Additional public transportation options include Uber. Keep in mind when making flight arrangements the WTAMU campus is roughly 30 minutes from the Rick Husband International Airport. All travel accommodations will be at the student's expense.

Student Lodging

Students attending New Student Orientation will have the opportunity to experience residence hall life by staying on campus. Students who plan to stay in on-campus housing for NSO will need to bring bedding or a sleeping bag and pillow, towel, and other necessities.  Student Lodging is included in your NSO fee.  We are not able to provide student lodging during the August 19-20 NSO.  However, we will arrange for you to move-in early to your Fall room assignment on August 18.

Family Lodging Options

Guest housing is available in Buff Hall for our family members that choose to attend NSO for a small fee.  Please visit our NSO Family Page, under Family Lodging Options, for details. You may also check out additional lodging options in the Canyon/Amarillo Area.  Family Lodging on campus is not available for the August 19-20 NSO.
