Transportation

For the first time, we will be able to travel from the airport to the University Guesthouse using the recently expanded light rail system. Fare: $2.50 each way. Change from the Green Line to the Red Line at the Courthouse going to the U. Medical Center and use the Fort Douglas Station.

Walking from Fort Douglas Station to the Guesthouse (.4 mile, 8 minutes)

Note: The light rail does not run 24/7, and weekend hours are limited. Check the schedules for the Green Line and the Red Line before buying your plane ticket.

Gender-neutral Restrooms

The women’s restroom in the Officers Club and also the women’s restroom in the lobby of the Douglas Ballroom have been designated gender-neutral restrooms for conference-related events. Transgender, intersex, genderqueer, and gender-non conformist are welcome!

Parking

About 90 parking stalls are available on-site as well. Plan to arrive early to ensure you get parking.

If you're driving to the Saturday evening events only, or any other event held in the Douglas Ballroom, park behind the Guesthouse as shown in this map.
