Lodging and Travel Information Page

Hotels:

We recommend booking rooms at one of the following hotels, which are located closest to campus. Please note: hotel rooms will be scarce because our conference coincides with the Keeneland fall race meet (information is here: https://www.keeneland.com/calendar/2016-fall-race-meet).

Hyatt, Downtown Lexington

Home2 Suites by Hilton, UK Medical Center

Request Lodging Through UK Student Housing

The University of Kentucky Student Housing Office may be able to accommodate a limited number of participants during the conference. The rates will be around $30 per night per apartment, and participants will need to share the apartment. Linen packets can be requested for an extra fee of $10. Please let us know if you would like to consider this option. Email Lacin at lacin.t@uky.edu.

Request a Homestay:

We also have a limited number of spots available for attendees wishing to lodge with local hosts associated with our department. If you would like to request a homestay, please do so by using this Google form: https://goo.gl/forms/ATxYmXofJJmJUZhm2. We will contact you as soon as possible to let you know whether, and hopefully where, we are able to place you. If you have any questions, please contact La├žin at lacin.t@uky.edu.

Airports:

Lexington Bluegrass Airport (LEX) is the most convenient travel location, but Cincinnati (CVG) and Louisville (SDF) are only 80 miles drive away. Southwest Airlines serves Louisville, which may be a cheaper flight option for some. You will likely need to rent a car from these locations to Lexington.

Local Transportation:

Lextran runs buses to and from the airport. Routes and maps are available here:
