Travel and Accommodations

How would I get there and where would I stay?

Accepted participants flying to campus should book travel to Detroit Metro Airport (roughly 40 minutes from campus by car). Round-trip transportation for student and non-institutionally affiliated participants will be covered by reimbursement. Faculty participants will be expected to cover their own travel and lodging costs, but some limited funding exists to subsidize travel and lodging costs for participants who demonstrate need—regardless of status.

A block of dormitory rooms has been reserved on University of Michigan’s campus for JPTW participants. These rooms will be available to participants free of charge for the workshop’s duration. There will also be five hotel rooms available at a discounted rate for non-students who do not wish to stay in the dormitory. Participants are also welcome to make their own lodging arrangements.
