MAC at night

Overnight Experience

Staying Overnight

New Maverick Orientation is much more than just two days of on-campus programming. The Maverick Overnight Experience keeps you in the action and lets you experience life as a college student, before you even start classes! 

Whether you live 3 hours away or right around the corner, the Maverick Overnight Experience is a great way to meet new people, learn more about campus life from the orientation leaders and create lasting memories.

The Maverick Overnight Experience provides students with overnight housing in Vandergriff Residence Hall and dinner with the Maverick Orientation Leaders. After dinner you can hang out with your new friends, participate in fun games and activities or play basketball/sand volleyball with other new students and Mav OLs.

Staying overnight, isn’t just about a place to sleep… 
it’s a Maverick Experience you don’t want to miss!!!

Students can register for an overnight stay when they sign-in to register for their New Maverick Orientation Session. The fee for the Maverick Overnight Experience (overnight housing, 2 meals, and evening activities) is $40.

Students will be staying overnight in Vandergriff Residence Hall. The residence hall rooms will have a linen packet (which includes sheets, blanket, pillow, and bath towel) so students will only need to bring the following items:

  • A change of clothes
  • Personal Toiletries
  • Shower shoes
  • Alarm Clock
  • Work-out type clothing & closed-toe shoes (for evening activities in the Maverick Activities Center)


*Limited rooms are available for parents and guests that would like to stay overnight. Students and Parents/Guests should pack separately as they will be assigned to different rooms in the residence hall.
