Types of Transportation Available to Campus:
The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport is 35 miles from campus. Carleton offers a very limited schedule of rides between the airport and campus; call the admissions office to make arrangements. Taxi service runs from the airport to the College. Rental cars are also available at the airport. Amtrak trains serve Minneapolis/St. Paul. These trains generally arrive late at night; therefore, you should plan to stay overnight near the station and take a bus or taxi to Northfield the following day. Northfield Lines also has a bus service to campus.
Driving Instructions to Campus:
From I-35, take Exit 69 to Minnesota Hwy. 19 and head east for 7 miles to Northfield. At the first stoplight (where Hwy. 19 merges with Hwy. 3), turn left. Proceed to the next stoplight (2nd St./Hwy. 19) and turn right onto 2nd St. You will come to a stop sign at Division St.; continue straight ahead up the hill on 2nd St. Turn left at College St., which takes you to campus and the admissions office.
