Airport Arrivals

Due to the location of Emory in relation to the rest of the city, a taxi is the best option.  Unfortunately, we are not located on the MARTA rail line and bus service from the airport to Emory takes a long time. Taking the Emory Inn shuttle would require participants to walk about 0.5 mile to the dorm for check in.

Use the following address to help taxi drivers find the Longstreet-Means dorm:

Longstreet-Means Hall
646 Means Drive
Atlanta, GA 30322
