Travel arrangements

Syracuse is accessible by air, rail, bus, and car. Hancock International Airport serves many major destinations. Our airport code is SYR. The Regional Transportation Center also offers service by Amtrak, Greyhound, MegaBus, and Trailways and as well as local bus service (Centro). SU is approximately a 10-15 minute Uber, Lyft, or cab ride from either the airport or RTC.

Driving directions from U.S. Interstate 81

Take the Adams Street off-ramp (Exit 18), which will lead to Adams Street. Turn onto Adams, a one-way road leading up hill. At the third light, the intersection with University Avenue, you will see the University Garage ahead on your left. (See map.) Enter the garage by taking a ticket and take the ticket with you. You will need it to reenter the garage. When you exit the garage using the Harrison Ave. exit, please mention the Newhouse Open House to the attendant. This is the only parking facility for which your parking fee will be covered. Please note that the garage closes at 5:30 p.m. By turning left onto Harrison upon exiting, you will be able to get back onto I-81.

How to find us

Walk up University Avenue and the heart of campus will be in front of you. The Newhouse complex is bounded by University Avenue, Waverly Avenue, University Place, and Crouse Drive, just two blocks from the University Garage. Please enter Newhouse 3 from Waverly Avenue. (See map.) Open House registration will take place in the lobby.

Planning for the Weather

November is still technically fall, but Syracuse can be subjected to unseasonable weather this time of year. We may experience an early winter snowfall or milder temperatures than usual. Our best advice is to prepare for anything. Check the forecast ahead of time ( or local TV stations, or CNY Central) and dress in layers. All events will take place within the Newhouse complex and all three of our buildings are connected. Some tours may lead you outdoors, especially to view the Maxwell School or the College of Visual and Performing Arts, with whom we have joint degrees.
