NOSSDAV will be held at the historic Carolina Inn on the equally historic campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The town of Chapel Hill is located in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina, which is situated approximately in the center of the state. The Research Triangle is formed by Chapel Hill and by the cities of Raleigh and Durham, with the Research Triangle Park at their center. Visit the following pages for more information on our general environment, and the Research Triangle area. For a map of the entire Triangle area, we suggest visiting www.mapquest.com.


Getting to the Area

By Air: The Triangle area is served by Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU). American Airlines provides direct daily international flights to RDU from London's Gatwick Airport. Other airlines, including Air Canada, Continental, Delta, Midway, Northwest, Metrojet, Trans World, United, and US Airways, provide service to cities within North America, with connections to cities abroad.

There is currently no public bus or rail transportation between the airport and the surrounding communities. Some of the larger area hotels have shuttle services. Taxis are available outside each terminal, near the baggage claim. The Triangle Transit Authority offers public van transportation from the airport to specific destinations (919-549-9999). R&G Airport Shuttle is based at RDU and delivers passengers to area businesses and universities for approximately $18 (800-840-2RDU). Some of our faculty use a shuttle service, LTD, (919-840-1836), which charges $25 one way and $40 return for the ride between the airport and Chapel Hill. Calling ahead is recommended. Most of the major car rental companies have offices at RDU. For more information on transportation, see RDU's ground transportation page. By Rail: For train travelers, there are Amtrak stations in Raleigh and Durham. Call 1-800-USA-RAIL for information and reservations.

By Car: Drivers may reach the Research Triangle area on interstates 40 or 85. More detailed driving directions to the Carolina Inn:
