Types of Transportation Available to Campus:
Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, CT (north of Hartford) is approximately 40 miles from campus. Public transportation from the airport to campus is inconvenient and expensive; you must take a bus or taxi to Hartford, then another bus or taxi to Storrs via Willimantic. A rental car is a better alternative. Private limousine services include the Horizon Airport Shuttle (860-429-8002) and the Airport Shuttle (860-450- 2170). Call for rates and reservations.
Driving Instructions to Campus:
From the north and south, take I-91 to I-84 in Hartford. Take I-84 northeast to Exit 68, then take Connecticut Rte. 195 S. to Storrs and the campus. Turn right on North Eagleville Rd. and turn left onto North Hillside Rd. Park in the north parking garage (fee charged). Tours begin in the visitor's center on the corner of N. Eagleville and N. Hillside Roads. The admissions office is located 1 block past the parking garage on Hillside Road. From Boston, take I-84 southwest to Exit 70; then take Connecticut Rte. 32 S. to Connecticut Rte. 195; take Rte. 195 S. to Storrs. From Providence, take U.S. 44 W. to Rte. 195, then 195 S. to Storrs.
Local Accommodations: Near By:
On campus hotel services located at the Nathan Hale Inn (860-427-7888) or nathanhaleinn.com. Close to the campus (a mile and a half away) is Altnaveigh Inn (957 Storrs Rd.; 860-429-4490), a pleasant bed-and-breakfast that offers 6 rooms. Tolland Inn is about 7 miles from Storrs (see the Trinity College entry). If you prefer a standard motel, try the Best Western (Rtes. 195 and 6; 860-423-8451), 15 minutes from campus. Here you will find the usual amenities and, in addition, an adjacent shopping mall. Or consider the Quality Inn and Conference Center (51 Hartford Tpke., Vernon; 860-646-5700 or 1-800-228-5151), right off I-84 at Exits 63 and 64.
