MSP to U of M
Upon arrival at MSP International Airport, there are several options to get to the University of Minnesota campus.
- The cheapest option available is via light rail. The light rail departs from the airport itself (both Terminal 1 or 2) and has a stop on campus. Take the blue line from the airport toward Mpls-Target Field. Exit the train at the Downtown East Station, cross to the opposite platform and transfer to the green line train headed for St Paul-Union Depot. Take the green line train to the East Bank Station and exit. The lab is two blocks north of the station.
More information is available at MetroTransit
- A shuttle service is available through SuperShuttle. The shuttle can go to a specified hotel or can drop you off on campus (search for Coffman Union).
Information on dropping-off or picking-up cores can be found on the Directions page.
If lodging is needed during your stay, several options are available. All information on hotels, visitor housing and hostels can be found on the Lodging page.
