Getting to Houston & Campus

Air Travel

Two airports serve Houston. They are both about a 30 minute drive from the University of Houston-Downtown. For directions from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH, north of Houston) to UHD, visit THIS Google Maps link. For directions from William P. Hobby Airport (HOU, south of Houston) to UHD, visit THIS Google Maps link.


Conference attendees are strongly encouraged to stay and park at nearby hotels, using the light rail to get to and from the conference events, as driving to campus and finding parking can be problematic (especially on Friday). Light rail is easily accessible from downtown hotels, and the Main Street (red) rail line stops immediately next to campus. Limited visitor parking is located on campus via the Girard Street entrance for a fee. The campus address is 1 Main Street, Houston, Texas 77002. Visit THIS Google Map, and enter your starting point for driving directions.

Light Rail

From downtown hotels, head to Main Street, and find a light rail access point. Pay your fare at a kiosk, and board the northbound line. Take the northbound (red) line to the University of Houston-Downtown stop. Light rail is $1.25 per ride. Special, reduced fares are available for students and seniors. Metro fare information is HERE. Red line info is HERE.
