Directions and Accommodations
As you plan your visit to the University of Notre Dame, please keep in mind that we are in the Eastern Time Zone.
Directions to the University of Notre Dame:
The quickest and easiest way to get to Notre Dame by car is via the Indiana Toll Road (Interstate 80/90). Exit the Toll Road at exit 77 and make a right onto Indiana 933/Route 31/N. Michigan Street. Follow N. Michigan Street for roughly one mile, then turn left onto East Angela Boulevard. Another left at the next traffic light will take you onto campus. The conference hotel, the Morris Inn, will be the last building on your left-hand side; the Conference Center at McKenna Hall will be across the street from the Morris.
By Plane or Train:
South Bend has its own airport (SBN), which also serves as the terminus of the South Shore Line, providing regional service to Chicago. A cab ride from the airport to the Morris Inn will cost roughly $15-$20. If you call ahead of time (574-631-2000), the Morris Inn can also arrange for a shuttle to pick you up.
Conference Accommodations and Getting from the Hotel to the Conference Center:
This year’s conference hotel will be the newly renovated Morris Inn on the campus of the University of Notre Dame, convenient located across the street from the Conference Center at McKenna Hall. If you are attending the event as a speaker or as an invited discussant, you will find a room in your name already reserved for the night of Friday, April 5. (Those of you who have made special arrangements to share a room will also find a reservation for the previous night).
Directions to the Reception on Friday Night:
The reception on Friday night will take place at the Studebaker National Historical Museum on 201 Chapin Street in downtown South Bend (approximately 10 minutes by car). Detailed directions will be distributed to all conference participants during the Friday afternoon coffee break.
If you are registering late for the conference and there are no longer any rooms available at the Morris Inn, we recommend you try the Fairfield Inn & Suites South Bend at Notre Dame, which is located just off campus and within easy walking distance of the conference location.
