TF Green Airport is located about ten miles south of Providence. The
most economical way of transportation to the campus is by shuttle
(Airport Limousine Co.), which leaves the airport on the hour and
arrives on campus about 15 minutes later.
The train terminal is located in Providence's downtown district.

is located to the north of downtown and provides a free shuttle to
Kennedy Plaza. From there, you can either walk "up the hill" (about 10
