If possible, we suggest that you fly into Philadelphia International Airport in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania since it is the closest to the Camden Campus. You should try to plan your travel, including any connecting flights, to minimize the necessity for overnight lodging. Hotel charges in large cities are high ($200 per night or more), though lodging in smaller cities is considerably less expensive.
If you wish to fly into another airport, such as Newark Liberty in New Jersey or JFK International in New York City, we do not provide this service. You must plan accordingly to reach campus from the airport. Remember, you can book your own taxi, shuttle service, Limousine, or purchase train/bus tickets to reach campus. See the list below for more details on transportation services.
