There are two airports that are close by Kent State University:

  • Cleveland Hopkins (about 50 minutes by car)
  • Akron Canton (about 40 minutes by car)


You can rent a car, take an Uber or Lyft, or a taxi to the conference hotel.  Once you arrive you won’t need to do much driving – the conference hotel and university are within walking distance, as are a wide selection of restaurants and all of the conference related activities.  Thus, no one needs to have a car during the conference.


  • The conference hotel is the Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center.  There are a block of rooms reserved for the conference and the code is “HUSSRL” – use that code and it will give you a special rate.  The hotel has Wifi and complimentary breakfast.
  • There is parking at the hotel for a daily fee.
