Travel and Lodging
The University of Georgia is in Athens, approximately 75 miles northeast of Atlanta. To get to Athens, fly to the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL).
You can then get a shuttle to Athens through Groome Transportation, which will take you directly to the Hilton Garden Inn or Georgia Center (a reservation specifying your destination is necessary in order to be dropped off at the Hilton). Check out Groome Transportation’s schedule here. Round-trip shuttle rides are currently $63, and reservations are strongly recommended.
VIGRE-sponsored participants will be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Athens May 20-25 for the first week of programming. They will then stay at the Georgia Center located on the UGA campus May 25-June 2 (unfortunately the Georgia Center was unavailable for the entire program).
