Travel to NS3

This page is about traveling to the NS3 summer school. Information for NSCL users traveling to the laboratory is available here.

Getting Here

NSCL is located on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. We easily can be reached by car and air.

The Lansing Capital City Airport (LAN) is serviced by five airlines. Rental cars and taxis are available for the approximately 20 minute trip to NSCL.

Wayne County Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW), with its new 97-gate terminal, is serviced by all major airlines. Rental cars, the MichiganFlyer coach service and limousine service are available for the 90-120 minute trip to NSCL.

The Gerald R. Ford International Airport in Grand Rapids (GRR) and the Bishop International Airport (FNT) in Flint sometimes offer lower rates and are within 60 minutes driving distances.

Staying Here

NS3 participants will be housed on campus in a residence hall near the NSCL building. It will be less than a 4-minute walk from your hall to the lab. Linens are provided for dorm-room beds. You will be responsible for bringing the following items: soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, other toiletries, bath shoes, alarm clock, clothes, books, etc. We highly recommend bringing a laptop or other computing device so you can access program documents and create new ones during NS3!
