The college has the following page with maps and directions for visiting Dartmouth college.

Flying to/from Boston Logan Airport

  

The easiest way to get to Dartmouth is to fly into Boston Logan Airport (a major hub), and take the Dartmouth Coach bus line directly to Hanover. Dartmouth Coach is a private company that runs 9 round trips between Boston Logan and Hanover each day. A few things to know about the Dartmouth Coach:

  • A round trip ticket to Hanover, the last stop of the route, costs $62.
  • The bus stops at each terminal—locations are listed on their website.
  • The bus has complementary power outlets, wifi (unreliable), bottled water, and pretzels.
  • Technically, a ticket is not a seat reservation, and seats are first-come-first-board. The organizers have never heard of someone not being able to get a seat on the bus, though. This also means that if you miss the bus that you chose when purchasing your ticket, you can just wait for the next one.
  • You must  have a printed paper ticket.
  • The last Dartmouth Coach leaves Boston Logan Airport at around 8:55pm (or a little later depending on which terminal).

If you miss the last bus or your flight is delayed to the point where you know this will happen, please email the organizers.  

Car rentals are also available.

Flying to/from Manchester Regional Airport

While Manchester Airport is closer to Hanover than Boston Logan, ground transportation is less convenient. Car rentals are available, and occasionally there is Greyhound bus service between Manchester and Hanover or between Manchester and White River Junction, VT, from where you can take a taxi (which should be reserved in advance). 

Dartmouth Coach from/to New York City

The Dartmouth Coach offers a route between New York City and Hanover, NH. Unlike the Boston route mentioned above, these tickets are seat reservations and much be purchased in advance (the earlier, the better).

Parking

If you choose to drive to Dartmouth,  Hanover Inn provide valet parking service. The cost of overnight guest parking is $23.00 and day visitor parking is $18.00.  You may also purchase a parking pass upon registration. Parking passes cost $10/day, and can be picked up upon checking in to the conference. They are valid for the Dewey Parking lot, which is in the north end of campus (outside of the map below, but see this map instead).
