Transportation Tips

Airports to fly into:

Easterwood Airport  - College Station, TX

While tickets are often more expensive when flying directly into College Station, with careful shopping you can sometimes find fantastic deals. We encourage everyone to investigate this option first. La Quinta will provide shuttle service to and from Easterwood Airport. Please email your itinerary to cfoltyn@cvm.tamu.edu in order to get on the shuttle list.

George Bush Intercontinental Airport - Houston, TX

William P. Hobby Airport - Houston, TX

Driving time to College Station is approximately 2 hours from either airport in Houston. However there is a great shuttle service that you can use. They will get you to College Station for only $26.99/ person.

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport - Austin, TX

Driving time to College Station is approximately 2 hours. In past years, Wet Lab attendees have rented cars to make this drive as there is no shuttle service available.

Dress Recommendations

The weather in January can range from dry and 80˚F to wet and 20˚F, and anywhere in between. We recommend dressing in layers as some labs are inside and some are outside, and we can never predict the weather in Texas. The website will be updated with weather predictions as wetlab approaches, so check back!

For the labs closed toed shoes are REQUIRED and coveralls are highly suggested. Many of the labs use fresh cadaver specimens and even the live animal labs can get VERY dirty.

Don't forget to pack something to wear to Northgate if you plan on attending Night Out at Northgate! Whatever you would normally wear to a bar is fine, but this bar has a great dance floor where there will be lots of two steppin'!
