Lodging and shuttle information:

If you are staying at one of the host hotels, please see the information below for transportation to/from PHX Sky Harbor Airport.  If you are staying elsewhere, please check with your hotel directly to see about transportation options.

The Moxy

The hotel does not use shuttles. Once you have arrived and collected your luggage at the airport, call the hotel and they will call you an Uber. The Uber driver will text you with their location once they get to the airport. When you need to go back to the airport, ask the front desk to call an Uber.

Residence Inn Downtown Tempe

Once you have collected your luggage at the airport, call the hotel for the shuttle. You will also need to schedule their departure time back to the airport with the front desk.

If your hotel is within walking distance of the Memorial Union on the Tempe campus, we highly recommend walking to campus, as parking is sometimes difficult to find on campus.  If you choose to park on campus, parking will be validated for the Apache Boulevard Structure, Rural Road Structure and the Fulton Structure. Bring your parking ticket to the event to be validated.

What to bring

  • Your parking ticket for validation
  • A notepad and paper (and great ideas!)
  • A sweater or jacket
  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • Sunscreen and/or a hat for the Arizona sunshine
