In one month the Overton full service hotel and conference center will open for business. The hotel will also have a new partnership with Texas Tech to give students a unique experience.
When the Overton Hotel opens its doors, hotel guests won't be the only ones moving in. Students from the Texas Tech Restaurant and Hotel Institutional Management program will also have a place there. The hotel and the university will partner to give students hands on experience. Students will take their Hotel Operations class in a classroom on the second floor of the hotel as well as participate in a lab there.
