Texas Tech University

Texas Tech University is more than just our next door neighbor. We’re corporate partners in a range of academic programs and classroom initiatives, as well as the official hotel of Texas Tech Athletics. We’re also the preferred hotel of students, parents, alumni and faculty. Our stylish accommodations and close proximity to Texas Tech’s main campus, United Supermarkets Arena and Jones AT&T Stadium, home of Texas Tech Red Raider football make the Overton a favorite home base for spirited Texas Tech athletic events, family weekends, class reunions, and winter and spring graduation celebrations.
