On the map you can see both the locations of the hotel and Thackeray Hall where the conference will be held. The two are within walking distance of one another.

The conference will take place in rooms 704 and 705 of Thackeray Hall (on the 7th floor). You may enter the building through doors located on the North, South, or West sides of the building. There is a small chance that some of the doors may be locked since the University is on Spring Break. The 7th floor can be accessed by either stairs or elevator. On this campus map you will see where Thackeray Hall has been circled in red.

From the airport

You can either take a taxi or a public bus.

By bus: The 28X Airport Flyer provides service between Pittsburgh International Airport and the University of Pittsburgh (located in the "Oakland" neighborhood). The cash fare for the bus is $2.75. Exact change is required when paying your fare as the operators do not carry change. Fares are paid when boarding. The bus leaves approximately every 30 minutes from 4:30AM-12AM and takes about 1 hour to get from the airport to campus. You can catch the bus outside of Door 6 in the baggage claim area. More information can be found here.

By taxi: Taxis can be found outside of the "Shuttles/TAXIS" door in the baggage claim area. Uber and Lyft are also authorized to pick up and drop off passengers at Pittsburgh International Airport. Cab fares run around $50 and will take approximately 30 minutes (both depending on traffic). Uber and Lyft tend to be cheaper.

The map shows you at which bus stop you should get off (if you take a bus) and how to get to the hotel. According to the map, the walk between the hotel and bus stop is approximately 0.9mi (or 1.5km).
