* Airports and public transit

Desipite being a tiny college town, Champaign does have an airport, CMI, which is 6.7 miles south of Illini Union.
This is the bus route from CMI to Illini Union. If by any chance think you might get lost, send me an email and I will let you know my cellphone number so you can call me when you actually do get lost.

Free airport pickup service is offered by CSSA. If you need this service, please let us know: Here

* Hotels

The top floors of Illini Union is a hotel, but you probably do not want to stay there since it is expensive. Here is a link though.

Instead, there is Lincoln Lodge, which has a special discount to competition participants, thanks to CSSA, a sponsor of UIUC Spring 2011. It is 1.3 miles away from Illini Union.

The rate is $40+tax with the sponsorship.
