How to Get Here & Where to Stay


Participants who are flying to St. John’s will arrive at the St. John’s International Airport. Various transportation options from the airport to the Marriott and Guv’nor are available: visit this website to learn more.


There are blocked rooms at two different hotels:

The Courtyard Marriott in downtown St. John’s (about a $10-$15 cab ride to campus, or a 40 minute walk)
Courtyard Marriott (709) 722-6636
131 Duckworth St

The Guv’nor Inn just across the street from campus.
(709) 726-0092
389 Elizabeth Ave

Both are giving us about a 20% discount (Marriott: $169, Guv’nor: $109). Both are holding rooms for us at this rate until Sept 23, 2014. Quote “ARPA” when making your reservation.


There is metered parking and 1-hour and 2-hour parking available on and near campus. However, parking spaces during regular business hours are hard to come by; you are encouraged to walk or take transit to the conference.
