Please make your own arrangements. For accommodations we have a list of suggested locations here. If you would like help you can contact Debra Farruggia (debra AT marine.rutgers.edu) on any recommendations or help. For those who have not traveled to Rutgers, Newark airport is the closet, and you from there you can train to New Brunswick or rent a car.
TRAVEL COSTS WILL BE REIMBURSED through Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. All OSSE meeting participants must provide a copy of their flight itinerary as well as original receipts for flights, hotels, and ground transportation. If it costs more than $24.99, an original receipt is required. MEALS will be reimbursed using perdiem method (Breakfast $10; Lunch $17, Dinner $30). Please do not send meal receipts. Meals which are provided by the meeting sponsor will not be reimbursed. Please forward receipts to Karen at the contact information below. The process usually takes approximately 10 days from the date receipts are received. Please also indicate where you would like to have your check sent.

Some breakout groups on the second day will meet at the Rutgers Marine Science Building in or around the COOL room. This is also where the cocktail hour will take place.
From Newark International Airport:
Exiting the airport, follow the signs for the New Jersey Turnpike. Take the NJ Turnpike South, follow directions below.
From the NJ Turnpike and Route 18 North
From Exit 9 of the NJ Turnpike follow Route 18 North towards New Brunswick, staying in the middle lanes. Pass the exit (two right lanes) for Route 1 North, and quickly get into the right lane, as you will need to exit immediately for Route 1 South. On Route 1 South, you will pass Sears and then a Rutgers sign. Take the first exit immediately after the Rutgers sign which is Ryders Lane towards New Brunswick, DO NOT GO UNDER THE OVERPASS. Proceed on Ryders Lane through one traffic light. A short distance after the light, you will pass Cobb Road on your right, and then two houses on your right. You will also notice that the road curves sharply to the left....DO NOT MAKE THAT CURVE! Our entrance is directly in front of you, immediately left of the large yellow/black arrow sign indicating a sharp curve to the left. Drive straight into our entrance and turn left into the parking lot.
From Route 1 South
Follow directions above from Route 1 South.
From Route 1 Nouth
Pass Route 130, you will see DeVry Institute on your right. Continue past the exit for College Farm Road (you will see Cook College on your left), the next exit will be for Ryders Lane (East Brunswick/Milltown) DO NOT TAKE THAT EXIT. Go under the overpass and take the Ryders Lane exit towards New Brunswick. Follow directions above from Ryders Lane.
From Route 78 and 287
Follow Route 78 to Route 287 South. Take Route 287 to Exit 9 (Highland Park). Make a right onto River Road. Follow about 3 miles to the Route 18 junction. Turn right onto Route 18 South, you will now be going over a bridge. Continue to the exit for Route 1 South, then follow the directions above from Route 1 South.
