Transportation and Lodging

Greetings SSJTI participants! Here's your travel information...


The closest airport is the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG). It is located in Hebron, KY approximately 25 minutes from UC’s Uptown Campus where students will be staying. The UC SSJTI planning committee will be providing complimentary shuttle services to and from the airport. We will inform registrants about the shuttle service schedule as flights get booked.  For students who choose to drive to attend, parking vouchers will be provided for a nominal fee. More details to follow.


Students will be provided with lodging the evenings of July 23rd, 24th, and 25th with move out scheduled for the morning of the 26th.  While attending SSJTI, students will stay in the beautiful and modern Marian Spencer Hall. Opened in 2018, this residence hall was named in honor of civil rights activist and UC alumna Marian Spencer who worked to pioneer civil rights for people of color in the greater Cincinnati area.  Marian Spencer Hall offers suit-style lodging with four people in two bedrooms, connected via a shared bathroom. The newest residence hall on campus, Marian Spencer is designed to be accessible; however, please share with us any pertinent information on your application with regards to accessibility so we can ensure full accommodations are made.


Meals will be provided at a University of Cincinnati dining facility. Every effort is made to provide vegan and vegetarian options, as well as accommodations for food allergies or dietary restrictions (e.g. gluten free, dairy free, etc.). Again, please note on your application if any of this applies to you so we may be properly prepared.
