Transportation and Arrival

Arriving at Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA) and transportation to campus

Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA), the airport we recommend Summer Scholars fly into, is about 30 miles from the University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville. Due to logistical challenges, our team will not able to provide shuttle service to and from the airport, but there are a couple of options for Summer Scholars who are flying into XNA and seeking transportation to the U of A at a reasonable price:


Check in and settling in on-campus

Our Project Team will be on hand for check-in to the university residence hall from ___ to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 17. Summer Scholars staying on-campus will be housed in the Northwest Quad, a suite-style facility. At check-in, Summer Scholars will be assigned a single room in Northwest Quad and receive room keys and a dining hall pass. While checking in, Summer Scholars will need to provide information for an Emergency Contact. After checking in, Summer Scholars will be free to settle into their rooms and explore the area until our first official Institute event at 3:30 p.m.
