  1. FromAirports

From Houston airports to the hotels

The "Medical Center Area" is where Rice is and where the hotels are. If you arrive at either of the two main airports (Bush IAH or Houston Hobby), you can get into this area by either the "Express Shuttle" (713) 523-8888 or a taxi. If you are traveling alone, the Express Shuttle is the best way to get here. From Bush IAH it will cost $20 (instead of $50+ for a taxi), and from Hobby it will cost $15. You can find out the most recent prices [here].

If you take the shuttle, ask them to drop you off either at your hotel (Hilton/Holiday Inn/Warwick/Best Western/etc.) or at the Medical Center. Please make sure that you say "Medical Center", as that is the name of the area! From Bush IAH it should be about a 35-45 minute ride. From Houston Hobby it should be about a 20 minute ride.

If you are coming directly to Rice, you can also ask the shuttle to drop you off at Entrance 16 to Rice. Once you are there, you pretty much walk straight into the university until you get to Duncan Hall. This is the computer science building.

  1. FromHotels

From the hotels to the meeting location

All meetings will take place in DH 3076 except on Wednesday, when all meetings will take place in conference room 223 in Herman Brown.

The Medical Center Best Western (6700 South Main Street) has a shuttle that can bring visitors to Duncan Hall at Rice. It's only a 15 passenger van, but they are happy to make two trips. Rice is about five minutes away so groups of guests should count on staggering the trip by about 15 minutes.

A printable map is available [here] and an interactive map is available [here].
