Campus Maps and Directions


There are many hotels in Galveston to suit a wide range of budgets and interests. Two historical hotels we recommend often offer state rates on a limited number of rooms:

  • Hotel Galvez is on the seawall, overlooking the Gulf.
  • The Tremont House is in downtown Galveston, near the historic Strand with many shops and restaurants.
