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.

University Groups

Whether you’re heading to Lubbock to tour one of our universities, celebrate graduation or participating in parents’ weekend festivities, The Overton is right next door to Texas Tech University and less than five minutes from Lubbock Christian University.

University Programs

The Overton partners with Texas Tech University’s Restaurant, Hotel and Institutional Management program to provide students with enhanced educational experiences in a full-service hotel environment. Students have the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience in front office management, housekeeping, property and facility management and convention sales and event planning. Our on-property classroom is also home to faculty meetings, dietetic intern conferences and a wine marketing course.
