Planning around your event

Let’s get logistical. After you’ve booked your event, we’ll help you make arrangements to get here, get around, and explore what our corner of Kansas has to offer.

Airport transportation and travel

Located just 45 minutes away from Kansas City International Airport, Lawrence offers convenient access to travelers. This proximity is comparable to the travel time from KCI to the wider Kansas City Metro area. Should you require transportation to or from the airport, we collaborate with numerous reputable transportation companies ready to provide shuttle services for your convenience.

Hotel partnerships and campus lodging

Planning to stay overnight? We’ve partnered with local hotels to provide special rates for guests booking an event at KU. And when class is not in session and space is available, we offer on-campus lodging in KU Housing facilities.

Contact us for hotel rates and lodging availability.

Campus parking

Parking on campus is simple and includes lots and garages campuswide. Based on your event's location and the size of your party, we'll determine the most practical and convenient parking options.
