If you will be flying, we will send you a confirmation number for an e-ticket. Be sure to bring your driver’s license or other form of picture ID to the airport, and arrive at the airport early enough to go through security screening.

Transportation: Students arriving at the Gainesville airport will be greeted by a member of the IDP Admissions Committee and driven to the hotel by the faculty member or by a courtesy van. If for any reason nobody is there to meet your flight (e.g., your flight is very late), please take a taxi to the hotel and get a receipt for reimbursement. Most students traveling by air will be departing on Tuesday, and transportation to the airport will be provided by van departing from the Health Science Center at 3:30 pm. Please be ready to leave at the designated time.
Meals: Meals will be provided Sunday evening through Tuesday lunch.
Hotel Check-out: Please allow yourself sufficient time on Tuesday morning to have breakfast at the hotel, check out, and board the shuttle bus with your luggage by 8:30 am. You will leave your luggage with the Office of Graduate Education.
Arrive in Gainesville, ideally by 5:00 p.m.
Student Reception – Current students will host a dinner for interviewees at Harry’s, which is across the street from the hotel. Please meet the IDP students in the hotel lobby at 6:45pm.
