Overnight Experience

The Overnight Experience at New Maverick Orientation is an exciting opportunity to get a taste of being a student at UTA! You will love making new friends and great memories while you enjoy the contemporary accommodations of Vandergriff Hall and the delicious dining on campus.

Freshmen attending a face-to-face orientation prior to August 9, 2021 are automatically reserved for a one-night stay in Vandergriff Hall for the night of their session. No on-campus housing is available for guests, so explore other Arlington accommodations that offer a UTA discount.

The COVID-19 safety plan for overnight orientations will be available on the orientation website in April.
