Travel & Lodging for the Summit

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Action in Media Education summit at Sacred Heart University, our fifth international media education summit!

For those who need directions (from the airport or if traveling by car), visit Sacred Heart’s page on visiting the university.

If you are traveling by air, the nearest airport is Bradley International. Some attendees may wish to fly in to one of the New York City airports (sometimes a better deal) and take a train from NYC to Fairfield. In any case, you will probably want to rent a car so that you do not have to rely on taxis to get around during the summit.

If attendees want to discuss sharing transport and lodging for the conference, the comments function on this page is live; that forum might provide an excellent way  to start the conversation.

For those already considering travel and lodging, accommodations options are listed below.

  1. I will be flying in to JFK airport Thursday night around 7pm. Does anyone want to carpool to Fairfield from New York? Jeff (jshare@ucla.edu)
