Travel and Accommodations

Travel

Students are urged to work with their home institutions to arrange carpooling and to raise funds for their travel expenses.

If your origin location requires air travel, Bradley International Airport is the closest airport to Wesleyan. For driving directions, please see From Hartford below.

The conference will be held in the Exley Science Center (ESC) at Wesleyan University.

While there is limited public transportation within the Middletown area, we would like to help facilitate any travel needed. Amtrak has a stop in Meriden (9 miles from campus) which connects to most of the Northeast region, and a taxi can be hired to pick you up and drop off at campus.
