Rogue Valley international Airport (MFR) is located 16 miles north of Ashland in Medford, OR.
See below the Southern Oregon University Map for transportation options. If you have a car, parking on campus (in Lot 36 off Mountain Avenue) will be available for a small parking fee on Thursday and Friday, and for free on Saturday and Sunday. Street parking is free. If you are using the on-campus accommodations, parking will also be free to you as a conference attendee, but you will need to let us know before you arrive as a special pass needs to be issued for that area. Note: Parking monitors will still enforce improper parking (e.g., taking up multiple spaces), disabled space parking, and reserved space parking.
