Travel & Lodging

The information on this page will be updated as the conference dates get closer.

On Monday we will meet at the Yerby Conference Center at 8:30am. For the rest of the week we will meet in the conference room located on the second floor of the Student Union. To find the location of the conference venue, you can use the campus map available here.

If you are planning to fly to Oxford, the closest airport is Memphis (MEM). From Memphis you can either rent a car or use the University of Mississippi’s shuttle service (ask of Drew Pruitt). If the shuttle is unavailable and you do not want to rent a car, another option is to take a taxi (this could be cheaper than the shuttle if you are sharing your ride). There are taxis at the airport in Memphis, or you can try to book one using the following phone numbers:

662-236-5557 (Angel Taxi)
662-701-7310 (Oxford Taxi)
662-832-8636 (Hotty Toddy Taxi)
