Hotel Room Blocks Available

To help make it a bit easier for you to make the trip to Waco, Student Foundation has secured courtesy room blocks at several local hotels with modestly reduced room rates.  You’ll find that list on this Hotel Room Blocks page along with details on each hotel, reservation methods, and other pertinent information. 

We keep working to add more hotel room block options, so check back if you're looking for other options or let us know by email (at StudentFoundation@baylor.edu) if you would like updates along the way.
