University of Houston
There are two airports serving the city of Houston.
- George Bush Intercontinental Airport (Airport Code: IAH). This is the
main airport serving Houston,
and it is approximately 20 miles north of the University of Houston. Although this
airport is further from the University of Houston than Hobby, you might (depending on
where you are coming from)
find that flights to it are significantly cheaper than to Hobby.
- William P. Hobby Airport (Airport Code: HOU). This is a smaller airport located
approximately 6 miles south of the University of Houston. If you can find a
reasonably priced ticket, this airport is closer to the conference location than IAH.
If you are a speaker that is being reimbursed for your flight, you must travel on a
and provide us with a receipt.
Transportation from the Airport to the University of Houston
It is possible to use Lyft (approximately $23-$33 one-way from IAH to UH,
$6-$13 one-way from Hobby to UH), Uber (approximately $40 one-way from IAH,
$20 one-way from Hobby)
or one of the many cabs available at the airport (approximately $80 one-way
from IAH, $40 one-way from Hobby). If using Lyft, Uber, or a Cab and staying at the
UH Hilton, make sure your driver is aware you want to go to the "University of
Houston Hilton on the UH campus" and not the "Downtown Hilton".
A less expensive option is to book with the
(approximately $50 for a round-trip, shared-ride van between IAH and University of
Houston, and approximately $35 for a round-trip, shared-ride van between Hobby and
University of Houston). If you are a speaker that is being reimbursed for travel, we ask
that you use the SuperShuttle, and we also need a copy of the receipt in order to reimburse you.
