There are several possibilities of travelling to the contest site.

By Car

The university is easily reachable by car as it is between interstates I-71 and I-75. Park in the Woodside garage (see below) high-profile van or not. Special instructions for parking high-profile vans are given in the campus map. Take a ticket to raise the gate. The ticket will have number 1 printed on it. If it does not, write a 1 on the blank side. After parking, proceed to registration in the 5th floor of Baldwin Hall, just outside Rm 544. There, you will get a number 2 ticket which will be used with the number 1 ticket to raise the gate when you leave. If there is no 2 on the #2 ticket, write it on. Do not confuse the two tickets. When you leave you will put #1 into the machine first, then #2. See the west campus map for more parking information and orientation.

Cincinnati is less than 2 hours away from a number of other regional airports including Louisville, Indianapolis, Columbus, Dayton, and Lexington. You might find airfares less expensive if you go through one of these locations but you will need a car to get you to campus.
