The main airport is Port Columbus (CMH). It is about 10 miles from the department.
We will arrange for a OSU/YMC van to pick up arriving participants from the airport a few times on Friday. Please look out for for announcements of van schedules and pick-up locations. In case the van schedule doesn't fit your itinerary there are several other possibilities to get to the department.
A taxi fare from the airport to OSU campus is around $20. There are also shuttle services and rental car companies available at the airport. Some of the hotels provide shuttle service as well if you make a reservation in advance.
Airfares into Columbus for the conference dates are presently between $120 (e.g. MDW) to $350 (e.g. SFO) from most places in the US. Occasionally cheaper airfares can be found for nearby airports.
