Travel

Getting to Milwaukee

We recommend flying into Milwaukee’s General Mitchell Airport (MKE), or to either Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport (ORD) or Midway Airport (MDW). From Chicago you can rent a car, catch the Airport Express bus run by Coach USA, or take the Amtrak train. The train does not run directly from Chicago airports, but you can catch it in downtown Chicago.

 

Around Town

We are providing a shuttle between conference sites and the Doubletree hotel. Here is the schedule:

 

Day Depart Doubletree Depart campus
Thursday, May 2 1:00pm 6:30 and 6:45pm (from campus to the Pabst Brewery)
8:45 and 9pm (from the Pabst Brewery to the Doubletree)
 

Friday, May 3 8:15am 5:45pm
 

Saturday, May 4 8:15am 6:00pm
 

If you miss the shuttle bus, you can take a taxi.  A fairly good resource for travel to and around MKE without a car can be found here.

If you are driving, there is parking available on campus. For more information, please consult this UWM Parking and Transit website.

 

Lodging

We have set aside a block of rooms at the Doubletree by Hilton in downtown Milwaukee from May 1–4. Located just a few miles southwest of the UWM campus, the Doubletree Hotel is close to several restaurants and bars as well many local attractions. They have given us special room rates of $109 per night. Rooms may be reserved by calling the hotel at 1-414-273-2950 or 1-800-222-TREE, or through this special dedicated website, which also has information about the hotel. Please reserve rooms by April 5 to ensure this rate.
