Traveling to AU
We can't wait for you to arrive on campus for Base Camp! As you prepare to arrive for Base Camp here is some important information regarding travel to help you plan!
Where Do We Stay?
The Base Camp program provides an overnight, residential experience for our new students. Students will be provided with a room on campus with one other roommate. Please see the FAQ or our Pinterest Board for a list of items each student should bring.
Anderson has a relationship with a number of local hotels that offer special prices for Anderson University families. You can visit this page to find a list of such local hotels. Due to summer camp occupancy we cannot provide on campus lodging for parents or other family members.
What If I'm Traveling Alone?
Every year many students choose to come to Base Camp without additional family members or guests. If you are a student traveling in alone and need some assistance getting to campus from a local airport, we can assist with transportation. Please read the attached guidelines and contact us with any questions.
