Transportation Information

Driving to campus?  Here are some suggested driving directions. We will send out parking passes in preparation for the conference, which will allow you to park in campus lots 18 and 27 (see map above). 
The nearest airports are located in Lansing, Saginaw, and Grand Rapids. There are limited transportation options available, so conference organizers strongly recommend renting a car.
The conference will be coordinating a limited number of shuttles from the Lansing airport, which will provide transportation to and from Mt. Pleasant. The service is only available at the Lansing airport, so this may be the best option for presenters without transportation. Contact the conference coordinator ( if you are interested in using the shuttle service.
