Travel and Lodging.

We recommend the following:

Hampton Inn, Hillandale Road
1-800-HAMPTON (426-7866)

Fairfield Inn, Hillsborough Road

Days Inn, Hillsborough Road


Costs: Hampton and Fairfield run $70-80 for big, comfy rooms with 2 double beds. Days Inn runs $40 for the same thing. Whichever chain you choose, go for these locations. There are multiple Hampton Inns, e.g., in Durham. Be sure to ask for the street addresses indicated.

Participants who drive, and who would like to receive 27 cents per mile mileage (x 220 miles each way, CHO-RDU), will be asked to give their Social Security number to Paul Babitts during the symposium. You will be reimbursed within 14-21 days after our return from Duke, by whatever method you are usually paid by UVA (direct deposit or check).

Durham vs. Charlottesville: Durham is nothing like Charlottesville. It's a big place. Also Duke's physical relation to Durham is not like UVA's to Charlottesville. Duke is set off in parkland. Major interstates cut through Durham, making areas that are not necessarily far apart difficult to get to from each other.

West Campus: You want to be as close as possible to Duke's west campus. (There are two campuses. East campus is downtown. You don't want that.) In any event, give yourself time to deal with traffic and getting lost. It takes about 4 hours to drive from Charlottesville to Durham and Duke University. Directions to West Campus can be found on the Duke University web page. .

Parking: Parking is available in the lot between Duke Chapel, which is adjacent to the Divinity School, and Bryan Center ("student union"). Parking is free Fri PM and Sat.
