Your entire party will be welcome to eat in our dining hall during your stay in Houghton (based on availability of dining hall).  The Admission Office will provide meal tickets for each member of your party for up to three meals during your visit to Houghton. You may purchase additional meals in our dining hall.


We provide transportation to Houghton from major airports, bus stations and train stations in Buffalo and Rochester, N.Y. for visiting prospective students in their junior or senior year of high school who are traveling without a parent or guardian. You can request transportation by calling the Visit Office at least 10 days in advance. When you call, please have your travel details ready (e.g., airport, airline, flight #, ETA, ETD). If the student is traveling with a parent or guardian, we highly recommend renting a car.

When planning your flights, please allow time for traveling to and from the airport.  Arriving flights should be scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., and departing flights should be scheduled between 10:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.

If you are looking for a nearby airport, Rochester International Airport and Buffalo Niagara International Airport are both a one and one-half hour drive from Houghton University. We recommend that you determine rates to both destinations in order to find the most economical route to Houghton.

If Houghton is providing your transportation from the airport or station, you can find housing within walking distance of the campus at The Inn at Houghton Creek.

Visit Reimbursement

If you are traveling to Houghton for the first time, you may be eligible for a travel reimbursement to help cover the costs of getting to campus.
