Travel

If you fly

Texas A&M University is located in east central Texas about 90 miles north of Houston. Air travel is available either via Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) or the Dallas-Fort Worth Intercontinental Airport (DFW) to Easterwood Airport (CLL) in College Station. Most attendees will find it most convenient to travel through Houston with a connecting flight, a limousine shuttle (https://groundshuttle.com/ShuttleService), or a rental car to College Station. Transportation between the hotels and the conference site, as well as to all conference activities, will be provided. Parking on campus is not free and depending on the time of day, may be inconvenient, so we encourage everyone to make use of the conference transportation while in College Station.

Local Attractions

Although College Station is a small city by Texas standards, it is located within easy driving distance from major metropolitan areas, such as Austin and Houston, and a little farther removed from Dallas/Fort Worth and San Antonio, the largest tourist attraction in the state. College Station is home to the main campus of Texas A&M University, one of Texas’ flagships and the largest public university in the state. As a land-, sea-, and space-grant institution, Texas A&M has one of the most extended campuses in the country. We’re not kidding when we say that everything is bigger in Texas! Our campus is the home of the Fightin’ Texas Aggies and houses the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum. For a sneak preview, click on the link below.
