2.      What are travel options to San Antonio?

Trinity University is located midway (four miles) between the San Antonio International Airport and downtown San Antonio on Highway 281 (IH 37). If you are flying into San Antonio, you will be arriving at the San Antonio International Airport. You will find the baggage claim area on the lower level of Terminal One, or toward the front of the building in Terminal Two. 

     Airlines serving the San Antonio area are: 

  • Terminal One:  Delta, Southwest, and Air Tran
  • Terminal Two:  American, United & commuter airlines 

Immediately outside the baggage claim areas, you will find transportation to the University via taxi, rideshare or airport shuttle service (SATrans Shuttle). Taxi fare from the airport to Trinity University is approximately $20.00. Rideshare rates start at $8.00. Please note the rideshare pick-up locations outside each terminal. Shuttle rates are $18 per person (roundtrip). If you are renting a car, several car agencies operate offices near the baggage claim area:  Hertz, Avis, National, Budget, and Dollar.  Others are available outside the airport area.

3.      Is there a map of Trinity University?

Yes; a Trinity University map is available on the Trinity University website at www.trinity.edu.  Some taxi companies and shuttle service drivers may not be familiar with all the buildings on campus, and you may need the map for reference. For those of you who are driving, you will enter campus at the lower entrance (Jesse H. Jones Recreation Area) off of Stadium Drive.  Signs will be posted.

4.      Do we have access to Trinity University’s outdoor recreation facilities?

Yes; you will have access to the University's outdoor recreational facilities.  These include an Olympic-size swimming pool, tennis courts, sandlot volleyball courts, basketball courts and jogging trails. Indoor recreational facilities are not available to conference guests.

5.      Will we have access to Wi-Fi while on campus and at the academy?

Yes; Trinity University boasts one of the most technologically advanced colleges in the country.  Trinity was recently recognized as one of the top 10 “most wired” campuses for its high-tech infrastructure.  It was also declared to be one of top “unwired” universities in recognition of the wireless network that covers the campus.  Campus conference guests are given access to the network (both wired and wireless) during their stay on campus.  At check-in, you will receive a log-in and password to use while you are a guest on campus.
