How to get to Penn State
Penn State is easy to access from any direction with Route 88 granting access from the East and West and Route 99 or Route 81 to 322 grant access from the North and South. Flying to Penn State is easy as well, as campus is located only 1.5 hours away from the Harrisburg International Airport, 2.5 to 3 hours away from Pittsburgh International Airport, 3 to 3.5 hours away from Philadelphia International Airport, and 3 to 3.5 hours from Baltimore/Washington International Airport. Rental vehicles or shuttles can transport attendees from these airports to State College. The following connection flights from multiple airlines and cities also fly directly into State College: Delta airlines from Detroit, US Air flights from Philadelphia, and United flights from both Chicago and Washington Dulles. There will be a free shuttle service that will transport participants from the State College airport to both the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center and the Country Inn and Suites.
