Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Math

Travel Information


Transportation to Lincoln

The conference is expected to begin at 3:30pm on Friday, January 28 (with on-site check-in starting at 1 p.m.) and it will end by noon on Sunday, January 30. You should make your travel plans in such a way that you can be here for the entire conference. If you are flying into Lincoln, then you will be taking the Embassy Suites shuttle to the hotel from the airport so you can drop off your luggage before the conference starts and check-in at registration. We expect the hotel shuttles will be waiting at the airport for each flight. If the shuttle is not there, the Embassy Suites has a courtesy phone by the baggage claim area that you can use to call to request a shuttle.

Flights into Lincoln, Nebraska are available from United (via Chicago or Denver) and Northwest (via Minneapolis on Northwest Airlink).

There are also many flights available in and out of Omaha (occasionally you can find flights into Omaha which are significantly less expensive than flights into Lincoln). There are shuttle services that will transport you from Omaha Epply Airport to the Embassy Suites. OMALiNK is one; Eppley Express is another. You may also rent a car for the weekend. While you are required to cover the expense at the time of the conference, you may request travel assistance.

If you're driving, Lincoln is right off of Interstate 80.

Driving in Lincoln

If you're driving into Lincoln, you will most likely be coming in from I-80. It will be easiest to take the Downtown Lincoln exit, which gets you onto I-180. I-180 becomes 9th street, and you're on the grid. If you're in a hotel it will be easy to find with the address.
